    Is it necessary to build a new parliament as the country's growth rate slumps into negative value?

    As Modi wants to build a new parliament building with crores of money (approx. 900 crores) as people are dying without food and many public sector offices are turning into private sectors and many people are unemployed in this pandemic situation and the growth rate slumps into a negative value. Is it right or necessary to build a new parliament for the country? Is Modi living in another space or Graham? Is it necessary to build a new parliament as the country's growth rate slumps into negative value? On one side India is taking loans from the World Bank and from China and now he is misusing the money not utilizing that money for priorities.

    Our parliament building must be 90 years old. This was built by the British in 1927. Instead of maintenance, Modi thought of a new structure with modern architecture. This can be done only while he is in power for the next 3 years. There could be a change in government or Modi may not be there.

    Despite difficulties, one should not stop working. Parliament is not for an individual or party. It is a national treasure. If Modi don't do it, no other government would think about it. Few hundred or thousand crores doesn't matter for a country with 1.3 billion population. If Modi wants, he can generate funds for construction of Parliament. All would contribute without any objection except the congressmen and the leftists.

    Present Parliament is built by the British. The existing building draws inspiration from Chausath Yogini Temple, Miaoli, and was built under the British empire for its Imperial Legislative Council in 1927.
    It was designed by Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker, who were responsible for the planning and construction of New Delhi by the British government. The construction of the building took six years and the opening ceremony was performed on 18 January 1927 by the then Viceroy and Governor-General of India, Lord Irwin.

    I edited and corrected my statement. The building is old and nearing a century. As a free Indian, we want to live in our own house constructed by us. Therefore, we need a Parliament house constructed by Indians of India.

    Mr. Bhushan, your information is absolutely correct. The present Parliament building was constructed during British rule in India.

    The school building in which I studied was built by the British in 1837. It is a stone construction. The building looks so beautiful and strong. It will certainly last for another hundred years. The Parliament building is also strong and will last a long time. The money about to be spent on the new Parliament building is not a necessity during these pandemic conditions. It can be postponed to a later time if it is so necessary. This is a misguided priority.

    The decision to build new Parliament building has many reasons. First the government pitch for Atma Nirbhar or self reliant must start from itself and thus the Parliament building which was the creation of British idea and inaugurated by the Britishers. does not liked by the present government and the present Parliament building has completed 100 years of existence. Moreover the growing demand of space and need to expand the seats for Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha were mooted as sooner the present seating capacity of 542 members is going to be increased according to the people representation across the country and in that case the present Parliament cannot cope up. So the deal with the dual need the government has embarked on new Parliament building at the cost of 900 crores and that would be befitting iconic building which can last long for 150 years.

    #717705 Tomorrow a new government will come and scrap the building and tell that what Modi built was not good they will build a new parliament house. Some people might think and start agitation that in South India also a new Parliament has to be built due to increasing pollution in New Delhi. It happens in the case of the Tamilnadu Assembly and now Amaravati (the new capital)is also of that kind.

    The argument that the Parliament building to be built will show self-reliance is absurd. There are so many structures, irrigation projects, roads, railway tracks, etc., that were built by the British. We cannot replace all of them. I do accept with the argument that the number of Parliament members may be increased in near future. I feel that is also not necessary as already the burden of the present members with their salaries, perks, and pensions is a great burden on the people of India. Add to this their security arrangements.

    Whenever Modi does something he always linked to the patriotism of the country. Why he is not taking any action who are starved for death?

    I think if the government has decided to go for the construction of a new parliament, nobody can stop the government. It's right a decision of the government or wrong one, we can express our views but our views don't bring any change. If the government delays this project it will be good because of the poor economy in the present day.
    Will the government continues this project or not. I don't know, I can't say.

    The erasing of parliament and going for new building was mooted by the previous regime and given the action now and therefore there is no opposition from anywhere.

    And those people who have not voted for this government has no right to question the developments thus mooted because they failed to gauge between the parties with guts to do things.

    I like to add a few interesting points on this subject
    1. There was no environmental analysis done about the building construction. About 1000 trees are going to be felled. So much for the environment.
    2. Some of the iconic buildings like Shastri Bhavan, Krishi Bhavan, Nirman Bhavan, and Vigyan Bhavan are going to be demolished. So much for the heritage buildings.
    3. The Delhi Development Authority called for the objections to the Central Vista project. More than 2000 objections by architects and the public were received. The DDA allowed 1292 complaints and asked them to appear before them and give their objections on 6th and 7th February and this was published on 5th February, giving just one day time.
    4. The selection of the designer was done without any open competition and the bidding process was limited to a few firms. A Gujarat-based firm was selected.
    There was not much advertisement and public debate over such an important and misguided priority project for the country.

    @ 717736: "And those people who have not voted for this government has no right to question the developments thus mooted because they failed to gauge between the parties with guts to do things."
    What kind of statement is this?
