PM Modi today inaugurated the ‘extension’ part of Parliament House Annexe building.
The simple function was attended among others by Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai and Union Ministers Ananth Kumar and Narendra Singh Tomar.
The extended building, which occupies an area of 2100 sq meters, has been constructed at a cost of Rs 261.85 crore.
The construction work on the building was completed on December 31 last year, taking a total of about five years.
The state of the art building seems to be larger than the earlier one. The well-furnished building has a number of large rooms where members of the Parliament can meet to discuss on key matters. The building will help in better functioning of the Parliament, DD News reported.
Apart from this, the new building also has space for government to organise conferences when required. In the walls, the Constitution of India and also the state emblem of India have been designed. The new Annexe of the Parliament also has a large hall where parties can be organised for visiting dignitaries. The building also has large corridors and surrounded by beautiful lawns.
