Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has inaugurated India’s new parliament building despite protests and boycotts from most opposition parties. The opposition parties chose not to participate, expressing their preference for the president to open the building instead of Modi. During the ceremony, top wrestlers who were protesting were detained when they tried to reach the new parliament. The new building replaces the old British-era parliament. The government’s ambitious project to develop the Central Vista complex in Delhi includes the construction of the new parliament building, which has a capacity to seat 1,272 MPs. The opposition parties criticized the government for the cost, construction during the pandemic, and lack of consultation. The ongoing political row highlights the divisions between the ruling party and the opposition in India.
