Congress Leader Mallikarjun Kharge Expresses Disappointment Over Late Invitation

New Delhi: In a momentous ceremony, Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman Jagdeep Dhankhar hoisted the national flag at the new Parliament building on Sunday, a day before the commencement of the Special Session of Parliament. The flag was unfurled atop the “Gaja Dwar” of the newly constructed Parliament edifice, and the occasion was graced by the presence of Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.

A Historic Moment: Witnessing Epochal Change

Chairman Dhankhar hailed this occasion as a historic moment, emphasizing that India is currently undergoing an epochal transformation. He remarked, “It is a historic moment. Bharat is witnessing epochal change. The world is in total recognition of the mighty power and contribution of Bharat. We are living in times, where we are witnessing development, achievements which we never dreamt of…”

Notable Dignitaries Attend Flag Hoisting Ceremony

The flag hoisting ceremony was attended by several prominent figures, including Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi, Union Ministers V Muraleedharan, Piyush Goyal, and Arjun Ram Meghwal. Congress MPs Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and Pramod Tiwari also graced the event with their presence.

Congress Leader Mallikarjun Kharge Expresses Disappointment Over Late Invitation

However, there was a shadow of disappointment as Congress president and Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha, Mallikarjun Kharge, expressed his inability to attend the flag hoisting function. Kharge revealed that he received the invitation rather late, stating, “I am writing this letter with a sense of disappointment that I have received your invite for the flag hoisting function tomorrow at New Parliament Building only on September 15, 2023, quite late in the evening.” He further explained that he was in Hyderabad for meetings of the newly constituted Congress Working Committee on September 16 and 17 and would return to Delhi late Sunday night, making it unfeasible for him to attend the morning function.

The new Parliament building, inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on May 28, stands adjacent to the existing one, symbolizing India’s commitment to its democratic ideals and its continuous evolution as a global powerhouse.
