New Parliament Building Equipped with Automated System, Sources Say

The new Parliament building, which will be inaugurated tomorrow, reportedly features an “automated system” that will switch off a Member of Parliament’s microphone at the end of their allotted speaking time, according to sources. Other features of the building include a biometric security system, a smaller Well to reduce protests by opposition lawmakers, and stricter entry norms for journalists. The new Parliament will also be “paperless,” with each MP being provided with a tablet computer. The building is equipped with six gates named after various creatures, including the elephant and Garuda, the eagle that is Vishnu’s mount.

Shift to Automated System Comes Amid Mic Muting Controversy

The implementation of the automated system comes as a response to allegations that the government has been muting the microphones of opposition MPs to prevent them from speaking. Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge accused the government of “insulting” him by muting his microphone, while the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party denied the allegation, citing technical faults. A video posted by the Congress showed a period of nearly 20 minutes with no microphones, which was only resolved when the Speaker intervened.

Prime Minister Modi Opens Special Session of Parliament

This morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi began a five-day special session of Parliament with a 51-minute speech. In his speech, he mentioned various topics, including the G20 summit, the Chandrayaan-3 Moon mission, and key bills such as Article 370 and GST. He also recalled the “bitter-sweet memories” associated with the old Parliament building, including the 2001 terror attack. Parliament will officially shift to the new building after the lunch break on Tuesday.

Controversial Bill Withdrawn, Eight Bills Still Under Consideration

A potentially explosive first day in the new Parliament seems unlikely as the bill amending the terms of appointment of the Chief Election Commissioner and Election Commissioners has been withdrawn. However, there are still eight bills listed for consideration during the special session. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah held meetings with senior union ministers ahead of a cabinet meeting.
