PM Modi's last speech at the old Parliament building

On Monday, Modi initiated the special Parliament session with an emotional speech from the old Parliament building for the last time. During his address, he recalled the contributions of former prime ministers including Jawaharlal Nehru, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, and Manmohan Singh, paid rich tributes to the country’s democratic traditions, and spoke about the history and legacy of the Parliament building.

Stating that they have “undertaken a journey of 75 years”, Modi said, “…As we bid goodbye to this Parliament house, we must remember that though this house was built by the colonial government, it was built by our sweat and toil, by our countrymen and with our money.”

The PM also paid tributes to "every brick" of the old Parliament building and said MPs will enter the new complex with “new hope and confidence”.

Modi had inaugurated the new Parliament complex on May 28.
