Business News/ News / India/  Rajinikanth thanks 'Bharat Pratham' PM Modi, says 'symbol of Tamil power will shine in Parliament'

Actor Rajnikanth has expressed his feelings as Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to inaugurate the new Parliament building head of this momentous occasion.

The traditional symbol of Tamil power - the sceptre (#Sengol) - will shine in India's New Parliament Building. My sincere thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi who made Tamilians proud," tweeted actor Rajinikanth.

Meanwhile, PM Modi said "your sevak" and the government have brought the Sengol out of Anand Bhawan in Prayagraj. Anand Bhawan was the residence of the Nehru family and has been converted into a museum.

Sengol holds significance not only because it was a sacred symbol of power transfer in 1947, it is also significant as it connected the glorious traditions of pre-colonial India to the future of independent India, Modi said.

It would have been good if the sacred Sengol was given its due respect and an honourable position after Independence, but it was kept on display as a "walking stick" in Anand Bhawan, Prayagraj. "Your 'sevak' and our government have brought the Sengol out of Anand Bhawan."

He said a question had arisen over symbol of transfer of power from British in 1947 and under guidance of C Rajagopalachari and Adheenams a virtuous path of power transfer through Sengol was found from out of ancient Tamil culture.

As a symbol of transfer of power, special 'Sengol' was made by holy Thiruvaduthurai Adheenam in 1947, he said.

"I am delighted that symbol of India's great tradition, Sengol, will be installed in the new Parliament building," Modi said.
