Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone of the new Parliament building in the heart of Lutyen's Delhi on Thursday. He performed the ground-breaking ceremony for the building, which is expected to be completed by 2022 at an estimated cost of Rs 971 crore.
While addressing the gathering at the event, PM Modi said the new Parliament building would be a witness to the creation of an 'Atmanirbhar' India, just as the old Parliament House gave direction to India in the post-Independence era.
