'Shree Ganesha' of new future as we move to new Parliament building: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday addressed the MPs in the Central hall of the old parliament building, before moving to the new premises.

In his speech, the Prime Minister said, “Today, we are going to do ‘Shree Ganesha’ of new future as we move to the new Parliament building.”

Bidding adieu to the old parliament building, PM Modi said, "bidding goodbye to this (old) building is an emotional moment."

PM Modi proposed that the old Parliament building be known as 'Samvidhan Sadan'.

"As we move to new Parliament building, we should maintain prestige of old building," the Prime Minister said.

"It was here in 1947 that the British did the transfer of power, our Central Hall is a witness of that historic moment," he further said.

'Beginning of a new future'

The Prime Minister said, "Today, we are going to have the beginning of a new future in the new Parliament building. Today, we are going to the new building with the determination to fulfil the resolve of a developed India."

'India is filled with a new energy'

"I had said from Red Fort - Yahi samay hai, sahi samay hai (This is the time, this in the right time). If we look at the events one after the other, each one of them bears witness that today, India has reawakened with a new consciousness. India is filled with a new energy. This consciousness and energy can change the dreams of crores of people into resolutions and make those resolutions into a reality...," the Prime Minister said.

"Now, we have to walk towards being the best in the world in the manufacturing sector. I had said from the Red Fort - Zero Defect, Zero Effect. There should be no defect in our products and the process should not have an effect on the environment. We have to go before the world with this 'Zero Defect, Zero Effect'...," the PM said.

'Have to meet the goal of becoming Atmanirbhar Bharat'

In his address to MPs, including those from opposition parties, PM Modi said: "...In the 25 years of Amrit Kaal, India will have to work on a larger canvas. The time for us to get caught up in smaller issues is over. First of all, we will have to meet the goal of becoming Atmanirbhar Bharat...It is the need of the hour, it is everyone's duty. Parties do not come in its way. Sirf Dil chahiye, desh ke liye chahiye."

'Paint a picture of grand India'

Addressing the lawmakers, PM Modi said: "Every law made in the Parliament, every discussion held in the Parliament, and every signal given by the Parliament should encourage the Indian aspiration. This is our responsibility and the expectation of each and every Indian. Whatever reforms are made here, Indian aspiration should be our priority."

"Can anyone ever make a big picture on a small canvas?" asked the PM, adding that, "Just as we cannot make a big picture on a small canvas, in the same way, if we cannot enlarge the canvas of our thinking, we will not be able to paint a picture of a grand India."

PM Modi hails decisions taken in Parliment

During his address, PM Modi said: "Muslim mothers and sisters got justice because of this Parliament, law opposing 'triple talaq' was unitedly passed from here. In the last few years, Parliament has also passed laws giving justice to the transgenders. We have unitedly passed laws that will guarantee a bright future for the specially-abled people. It is our privilege that we got the opportunity to abrogate Article 370 from the Parliament."

'World's eyes are on India'

The Prime Minister said: "World's eyes are on India; during Cold War we were non-aligned, now we have different status, are moving ahead as 'vishwa mitra'."

"Our position as a 'friend of world' is helping all our citizens with a key role in global supply chains, place at major platforms," he added.
