1. India’s New Parliament Waiting For The Supreme Court’s Order…
The construction of the new parliament’s building will have to wait till the Supreme Court delivers its verdict on the series of pleas opposing the project. The Apex Court expressed displeasure this week over the Centre. Questions arises that when the Apex Court has not allowed the construction then why laying the foundation in haste?
If the Supreme Court has not allowed the construction of the new Parliament building till its final verdict, what is the logic of its permission to allow the foundation laying ceremony? It is incomprehensible.
