‘Modi should return as PM in 2024’: Head Priest who’ll present Sengol during Parliament inauguration

“Narendra Modi should return as the Prime Minister again in 2024,» said the head priest of Madurai Adheenam, Shri Harihara Desika Swamigal, who will present the ‘Sengol’ to PM Modi during the inauguration of the new Parliament building on Sunday, May 28.

Speaking to ANI, the head priest said, “PM Modi is a leader who got global appreciation. He is doing good things for people. Again in 2024 he has to become PM and should guide people. We are all so proud as world leaders are appreciating our PM, Modi.»

PM Modi will install the historic sceptre ‘Sengol’ near the Speaker’s chair inside the new Parliament building tomorrow. 

A total of 21 Adheenams left for Delhi from Chennai airport on Saturday morning to participate in the inauguration ceremony of the new parliament building.

The ‘Sengol’ was received by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru on 14 August 1947, as a representative symbol of the transfer of power from the Britishers to India. The same spectre will be handed over to PM Modi by the head priest of Madurai Adheenam on 28th May.

The ‘Sengol’ was crafted by Vummidi Bangaru Chetty, a renowned jeweller in what was then known as Madras. This impressive sceptre measures five feet in length and features a ‘nandi’ bull at the top, representing the concept of justice.

The Prime Minister took a decision to adopt the Sengol as a national symbol of the Amrit Kaal. The new building of Parliament will witness the very same event, with Adheenam (Priests) repeating the ceremony and vesting the PM with the Sengol.

The establishment of «Sengol», makes the spirit of 15 August 1947 unforgettable. It is the symbol of the promise of boundless hope, boundless possibilities and a resolve to build a strong and prosperous nation.

CR Kesavan, great-grandson of first Indian Governor-General C Rajagopalachari, has hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the decision to establish the historical ‘Sengol’ in the new Parliament House, saying only a person with a profound understanding of India’s civilisational heritage and traditions can ensure that such an important event is given its due place in history.
