Nagaur (Rajasthan), May 28 (ANI): Dubbing it as a decision that may ‘harm the BJP in the future’, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on May 28 in Nagaur said that 20 Opposition parties boycotting the inaugural event of the new Parliament building is a ‘message to the world in itself’. Calling the matter ‘unfortunate’, the CM recalled the invitees during the Rajasthan Assembly inauguration and stressed on the importance of the President of India for such events.“This was very unfortunate. It is because this is an event where the Head has a role. We invited the President when we inaugurated the Rajasthan Assembly. The Speakers and the Deputy Speaker were also there. You should have not done this at an event like this. 20 parties boycotted the event. You can imagine the message that went across if 20 states boycotted the event. This will only cause harm to the PM in the future,” Gehlot said.The inauguration of the new Parliament building by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been in the eye of the storm for the past few days. Many Opposition parties boycotted the event saying that the inauguration should have been done by the President of India instead. The inauguration, however, was held in the most gala manner on May 28 in Delhi, marking a new era for the Indian Parliament and Democracy.
