The Congress party is expected to follow suit and join the unified boycott.

TMC leader and Rajya Sabha MP Derek O’Brien has announced a boycott of the upcoming inauguration of the new Parliament. Derek O’Brien launched a scathing critique against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accusing him of adopting a self-centered approach. O’Brien alleged that the prime minister’s sole focus during the Parliament’s inauguration revolves around “I, me, myself.”
D Raja, General Secretary of the Communist Party of India (CPI), stated that his party leaders would be absent from the ceremony.
As of the present moment, there has been no official statement released by Congress, nor have any of its leaders made announcements regarding the grand old party’s participation in the ceremony. However, reliable sources within the party suggest that Congress is inclined to abstain from attending the inauguration program.
The esteemed political party is expected to issue a statement regarding the matter on Wednesday.
The event faced strong objections from the CPM (Communist Party of India) as well.
