Old Parliament Building Will be “Samvidhan Sadan”, Declares PM Modi

New Delhi: The old Parliament building will be called “Samvidhan Sadan (Constitution House),” announced Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his last speech from the old building on Tuesday.

He then led all MPs on foot to the new parliament building. From now on the new Parliament building will be the official Parliament House of India.

” Now that we are going there (the new parliament building), the glory of this house should never decline. We shouldn’t just call it the ‘old parliament’. I request, if both of you permit, that this building should be known as ‘Samvidhan Sadan’ so that it always serves as an inspiration for us. When we call it ‘Samvidhan Sadan’, the memories of those great people who once sat here in the Constituent Assembly get linked to it. We shouldn’t let go of this opportunity to offer this gift to the coming generations,” PM Modi said.

The iconic old Parliament building was designed by British architects Sir Edwin Lutyens and Herbert Baker. This 96 year old architecture was completed in 1927. This historic structure will be conserved, as it is an archaeological asset of the country.
