Amid the ongoing boycott Parliament inauguration call, a public interest litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Supreme Court (SC.)

The PIL filed in the Top Court sought a direction that the new Parliament building should be inaugurated by the President of India and not by the Prime Minister of India.  Notably, the major reason behind the boycott call is that opposition parties are asking that Ms. Droupadi Murmu, the President of India, should inaugurate the parliament, on the 28th of May.  The opposition parties like the Indian National Congress, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and others are opposing the inauguration by Mr. Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India.

The filed PIL said that the Lok Sabha Secretariat violated the Constitution by not inviting the President for the inauguration.  The statement issued by the Lok Sabha Secretariat on the 18th of May, and invites issued by the Secretary General, Lok Sabha, about the inauguration of the new Parliament building, is in violation of the Indian Constitution.  The PIL was filed by an advocate Sukanya Jain.  The plea said, “Prime Minister is appointed by the President and other ministers are appointed by the President on the advice of the Prime Minister.  The President of India is authorised to appoint constitutional functionaries such as Governors, Judges of both the Supreme Court and high court, Comptroller and Auditor General of India, chairman and manager of the Union Public Service Commissioner, Chief Election Commissioner, Financial Commissioner, and other Election commissioners.”  It further added, “Respondents has violated the Indian Constitution and the Constitution is not being respected.  Parliament is the supreme legislative body of India.  The Indian Parliament comprises the President and the two Houses – Rajya Sabha (Council of States) and Lok Sabha (House of the People).  The President has the power to summon and prorogue either the House of Parliament or to dissolve the Lok Sabha.”

The supreme court is likely to review the petition filed, whereas the parliament building inauguration is scheduled to be held on the 28th of May. PM Narendra Modi would inaugurate the parliament, which is being opposed by as many as 21 anti Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) parties.
