Some seats were changed last time too, I have heard that many people are looking to change their seats this time as well. I have also heard that many people now want to go to Rajya Sabha instead of Lok Sabha. They are looking for their paths by assessing the situation."

He also reads out a statement of former PM later Indira Gandhi; "...Looking at the people in Congress today, it seems that Indira ji could not assess the people of the country correctly but assessed Congress absolutely correctly..."

They (Opposition) failed to fulfil their responsibility as the opposition...I have always said that the country needs a good opposition.

This 75th Republic Day, the New Parliament, Sengol - all this was very impressive. We will always remember this: PM Narendra Modi in Lok Sabha during the reply to the President's address. 

When the President came to this new Parliament building to address all of us and the pride and honour with which Sengol led the entire procession - we were walking behind it. When we become a witness to the reflection of that holy moment of India's independence in this new tradition in the new Parliament building, the honour of democracy rises.
