Soon after returning from his visit to the United States, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was seen visiting a construction site in Delhi. At about 8.45 pm on Sunday night, PM Modi visited the construction site of the new parliament building and inspected the ongoing work. He also spoke to those involved in the construction work. 

The building is part of the Central Vista project, which has faced stiff criticism from the opposition. Construction for the new Parliament building is expected to be completed by the end of next year.

It will also have a grand Constitution Hall to showcase India's democratic heritage, a lounge for members of Parliament, a library, multiple committee rooms, dining areas and ample parking space.

In the new building, the Lok Sabha chamber will have a seating capacity for 888 members, while the Rajya Sabha will have 384 seats for members.
