Parliament building foundation stone:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of the new Parliament building in December 2020. The new building will have a grand Constitution Hall which will showcase India’s democratic heritage, a lounge for MPs, a library, multiple committee rooms, dining areas and parking space. The government is also set to construct an Executive Enclave that will house a new Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), Cabinet Secretariat, India House and National Security Council Secretariat.
The new building will be triangular in shape with a national emblem installed in it. The redevelopment of the Central Vista, the nation’s power corridor, also envisages a common central secretariat, revamping of the 3-km Rajpath from the Rashtrapati Bhavan to the India Gate, new office and residence of the prime minister, and a new vice-president enclave.
