Along with other oppositions Rahul Gandhi, leader of Congress party slammed Modi govt for not inviting President of India in the inaugural ceremony of the new building of Parliament

Former Member of Parliament from Wayanad Rahul Gandhi strongly censured Saffron party's decision of not to invite President in the inaugural of the new building of Parliament.
He stated that not inviting the President is an act of humiliation to country's top constitutional post and Parliament is not just made of bricks of ego; it has constitutional values.
In a tweet, Gandhi, said, "Not getting the President to inaugurate the Parliament nor invite him to the ceremony is an insult to the country's highest constitutional post. Parliament is not made of bricks of ego, but of constitutional values."

On Monday, Union Home minister announced that PM Modi will inaugurate the new building on May 28. Earlier on Sunday, Gandhi had called for the President to inaugurate the new Parliament building and not the prime minister.

On May 18, Speaker Om Birla had met with PM Modi and extended an invitation to him to inaugurate the new building.Thus they are facing backlashes from the opponent parties.
Earlier TMC leader and MP Derek o Brian , CPIM general secretary Sitaram Yechury and various leaders criticized this move.

As many as 19 opposition parties issued a joint statement on Wednesday, saying that they will not attend the inauguration ceremony of the new Parliament building. These parties include Congress, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Trinamool Congress (TMC), Janata Dal-United (JDU), and CPI among others.

These opposition parties said that they find no value in a new building when the soul of democracy has been sucked out of Parliament. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to inaugurate the new Parliament building on May 28.
