Referring to the Sengol kept in the Parliament, he said that it earlier suited the hands of Pandit Nehru, which connects us from the past to the present.
PM Modi said, "There is a historical heritage in the Parliament. That is Sengol. It connects our prosperous history to the present. And when today we are entering the new house, it is parliamentary democracy, then it is witnessing the first ray of independence, which is going to inspire the coming generations also. This is sacred Sengol. It was touched by the first Prime Minister of India, Pandit Nehru. The festival of independence started by performing puja rituals at the hands of Pandit Nehru and that is why it is very important. This Sengol connects the present with the past."
‘Sengol is a cause for pride and inspiration’
Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, "It is not only a symbol of the great tradition of Tamil Nadu, it is also a symbol of the unity of the country and all of us honorable MPs should always remember that this sacred Sengol which graced the hands of Pandit Nehru is today becoming a source of inspiration for all of us.

Big thing said through special words of Jainism
Along with this, PM Modi called upon everyone to work unitedly in the interest of the country and said, “This is the time to forget every bitterness of the past.” My best wishes to everyone. Today Samvatsari is also celebrated, it is a wonderful tradition. Today is the day when we say ‘Michhami Dukkadam’, it gives us an opportunity to apologize to someone whom we have hurt knowingly or unknowingly. I also want to say ‘Michhami Dukkadam’ to all the members of Parliament and the people of the country.”
The PM said, “According to Jainism, Michhami means forgiveness and Dukkadam means mistakes.” It means forgive me for the mistakes I have committed knowingly or unknowingly.”
