In such a situation, the controversy has increased over the continuation of the construction work of the new Parliament building (Central Vista Project) by the Narendra Modi government. Many opposition leaders are criticizing the Modi government that people are not getting basic facilities during an epidemic in the country and on the other hand the Parliament House is being constructed. Former Congress president and sitting MP Rahul Gandhi has also targeted the Modi government over the Central Vista project. Rahul Gandhi has called the Central Vista Project a criminal waste.
Rahul Gandhi tweeted, “Central Vista is criminal wastage. Put people’s lives at the centre-not your blind arrogance to get a new house. ”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the new building of the Parliament of India on 10th December 2020. This new Parliament House is being built near the existing Parliament House.
