A historical Sengol representing the handover of power from the British would be prominently put at the forthcoming Parliament Building, according to Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

“This Sengol truly significant. The late Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru accepted this Sengol from Tamil Nadu as a sign of gaining independence at approximately 10.45 PM on August 14, 1947, in the presence of other top politicians. It represents a transfer of power from the British to the citizens of this nation, according to Shah.

During his announcement, Union Home Minister Amit Shah emphasised the crucial importance of Sengol in Indian culture, particularly Tamil culture. He emphasised the significance of its past, going all the way back to the Chola empire. The Minister declared that the revered Sengol, which represents a transfer of power, would have a place in the New Parliament Building. Prior to the Parliament Building’s ceremonial opening, Prime Minister Narendra Modi would receive the Sengol from Tamil Nadu, where it would be prominently displayed close to the speaker’s seat.
