CHENNAI: Union finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Thursday appealed to opposition parties to reconsider their decision to boycott the new parliament building inauguration function on May 28.
Nirmala Sitharaman spoke to reporters on the installation of a ‘sengol‘ in the new parliament building. During the interaction, when she was asked about the announcement of opposition parties to boycott the inauguration function because President Droupadi Murmu was not invited, Nirmala appealed to the political parties not to politicise the issue and appealed to them to reconsider their decision.
“Parliament is the temple of democracy. The opposition parties are also going to sit in the new parliament building. They should forget the differences. Instead of doing politics, they should reconsider their decision to boycott the function,” said Nirmala Sitharaman.
She alleged that the opposition parties had spoken ill of Murmu during the presidential campaign. “They were the same opposition parties who spoke ill of her and abused her during the presidential campaign. These opposition parties said that Murmu would be a rubber stamp. But now the same opposition parties see her as an eminent leader. They said that Murmu represented evil forces. Obviously, they had RSS in mind. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is giving her the due respect, and all of us are extremely proud of her,” the minister said.
