Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday inaugurated the Duty Path, Netaji Statue and the renovated Parliament Complex in Delhi to replace the legacy of the British rule. At that time, he proudly said that he was creating a bright future.
In 2014, after the BJP government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi took office at the Centre, it was decided to change the sign of the British rule traces. Accordingly, Race Course Road, where the Prime Minister’s residence is located, was renamed as Lok Kalyan Road. The British song was removed and an Indian song was added to the Pasara return parade of the Republic Day celebrations. The flag of the Indian Navy designed during the British era was changed.

Similarly, it was decided to build a new parliament in Delhi to remove the traces of the British era. Prime Minister Modi laid the foundation stone for the new Parliament Building on December 10, 2020. The new Parliament is being built in a triangular shape with 4 floors on an area of 64,500 square meters. Prime Minister’s House, Vice President’s House, Central Secretariat, Central Conference Centre, National Security Council Secretariat, offices of 51 Ministries are being built in the Parliament complex.
In the first phase, the 101-acre Parliament complex from India Gate to Vijay Chowk has been renovated at a cost of Rs.487 crore. The Parliament complex has been converted to international standard with walkways, lawns, shops, 900 electric lights, 422 granite seats, tunnels, 300 CCTV cameras. 1,117 cars and 35 buses can be parked at 2 places.
As part of this project, 3 km. The remote royal road was reconstructed. Named as ‘King’s Way’ during the British era, this route was called ‘Raja Patha’ in Hindi. The central government recently changed it to ‘Khartavya Path’ (path of duty).
A statue of George V, erected at India Gate during the British rule, was removed in 1968. A 28 feet tall hologram statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was installed there last January. A 28 feet high marble statue of Netaji is now installed at that place. Sculptors led by Sthapathi Arjun Yogi Raj carved the idol from a single stone.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the Duty Path, Netaji Statue and the renovated Parliament Complex (Central Vista) yesterday.
The Prime Minister inaugurated the Netaji statue at 7 pm last night. Later he interacted with the workers involved in the construction of the Parliament complex. He also visited the exhibition hall set up in the Parliament complex.
Following this, he inaugurated the renewed ‘Path of Duty’. Then Prime Minister Modi said:
We are moving beyond the past and creating a brighter future. Delhi Rajpath has now become a duty lane. Rajapathi was a symbol of slavery. That name has been erased and a new history has been made.
I congratulate and appreciate the workers involved in the construction of the renovated Parliament complex. They will participate in next year’s Republic Day celebrations as special guests.
If Netaji had followed the path of Subhash Chandra Bose, India would have made many achievements. But Netaji’s policies were completely ignored. BJP government is fulfilling the policies and dreams of Netaji. Following his path various important decisions have been taken in the last 8 years.
British-era symbols, only the tracks, have not been changed. Their policies are also changing. Hundreds of archaic laws dating back to the British era are being repealed. British time budget time, date changed. People are freed from the compulsion to study a foreign language. A new education policy has been implemented considering the lives of the young generation of India.
India is making achievements in various fields. Our country is leading in the field of transportation and digital in the international arena. There is progress in people’s lives socially and economically. Prime Minister Modi spoke thus.
