A significant political controversy has started in anticipation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s inauguration of the new parliament on May 28. The President should inaugurate it, according to opposition parties, as he is the “highest constitutional authority.”
The Congress has also taken issue with the inauguration date. The Congress claimed that choosing May 28 as the date is a “complete insult” to the nation’s founding fathers as it marks the birth anniversary of VD Savarkar, one of the BJP’s most recognisable figures.
Speaking for the BJP, Gaurav Bhatia referred to the Congress as “useless” and declared that Veer Savarkar was an honour to every Indian. Inform anyone who is doubting the date that they are unimportant and not even worth the dust on Veer Savarkar’s foot.
“Congress often creates controversy where none exists. The PM is the Head of Government and leads the Parliament on behalf of the Government, whose Policies are implemented in the form of Laws, whereas the President is the Head of State. While the PM is a member of both Houses, the President is not, Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri tweeted.
Congress has a habit of raking controversies where none exist. While President is the Head of State, PM is the Head of Govt & leads the Parliament on behalf of the Govt, whose Policies are effected in form of Laws. The President is not a Member of either House, whereas PM is. pic.twitter.com/73Ns7NP8EK
