It is worth noting that Speaker of Lok Sabha Sumitra Mahajan had written a letter to Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu in December 2015 asking him to consider initiating action for construction of a new Parliament building.

Mahajan had also offered two options for the alternative site, one within the Parliament complex itself and another across the Rajpath.

In her letter, Mahajan had said, "On account of ageing of the Parliament House building and expansion in activities, staff etc, the building has shown signs of distress and over utilization...Under the circumstances, there is an imperative need for the construction of a new state-of-art Parliament building."
