New parliament Building National Emblem: The issue of the Ashoka Stambh, the national emblem on the new Parliament building, has reached the Supreme Court. A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court regarding the national emblem in Central Vista. Two lawyers have filed a petition saying that it is different from the original symbol kept in Sarnath. The Supreme Court should order the government to rectify it.
The petition, filed by advocates Aldanish Ren and Ramesh Kumar Mishra, said that the emblem on the roof of the new Parliament House being built in Central Vista is different from the Indian emblem. For this reason, its installation is in violation of the State Emblem of India (Prohibition Against Improper Use) Act, 2005, which prevents the misuse of the Indian emblem.
What was said in the petition?
Both the lawyers have said that the lions are seen furious in the symbol put up on the roof of the Parliament House. Their mouths are open, in which sharp teeth are visible. It also did not write ‘Satyameva Jayate’ in Devanagari script, which is an essential part of the national emblem. Such a change in the symbol is wrong. The Supreme Court should order the government to rectify it.
PM Modi inaugurated
It is worth noting that in the past, Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Indian emblem in Central Vista. This emblem on the roof of the new Parliament building is made of bronze. Its total weight is 9,500 kg and its height is 6.5 meters. It has been cast on top of the central foyer of the new Parliament building. A supporting structure of steel weighing about 6,500 kg has been constructed to support the emblem.
Opposition parties surrounded the government for the design of lions
After its inauguration, opposition parties had targeted the government for the lion’s structure and aggressive posture. In response to this, the government had said that only after doing a lot of research, this national emblem Ashoka Stambh has been installed in the new Parliament Building.
