Spectacular images of Pradhanmantri Sanghralaya

The Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated Pradhanmantri Sanghralaya, which is a tribute to every prime minister in the country since Independence, in New Delhi today.
Located at the Teen Murti complex in New Delhi, the government said the museum has been developed to create awareness about all 14 prime ministers of the country with ample space for future leaders as well.
The museum built up at a cost of ₹271 crore was approved in 2018. There are a total of 43 galleries in the Sangrahalaya.
The design of the museum building is inspired by the story of rising India, shaped and moulded by the hands of its leaders.
The logo of the Sangrahalaya represents the hands of the people of India holding the Dharma Chakra symbolizing the nation and democracy.
The museum tells the story of India after Independence through the lives and contributions of its prime ministers, the PMO had said earlier.
Modi also bought the first ticket of the museum before its inauguration, officials said.
The PMO said the museum has been guided by Modi's vision to honour the contribution of all the prime ministers of India towards nation building and is a tribute to every prime minister of the country since Independence, irrespective of their ideology or tenure in office.
“This museum is a living reflection of the shared heritage of each government”
“This museum has come as a grand inspiration in the time of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav”
“Every government formed in independent India has contributed in taking the country to the height it is at today. I have repeated this thing many times from Red Fort also”
“It gives confidence to the youth of the country that even a person born in ordinary family can reach the highest position in the democratic system of India”
“Barring a couple of exceptions, India has a proud tradition of strengthening democracy in a democratic way”
“Today, when a new world order is emerging, the world is looking at India with a hope and confidence, then India will also have to increase its efforts to rise up to the occasion”
The logo of the museum which has many hands holding the chakra, the Prime Minister said that the Chakra is the symbol of 24 hour continuity and resolve for prosperity and hard work.
Controversy When the museum was first announced in 2018 by the Narendra Modi government, the Congress alleged it was an attempt to dilute the legacy of Jawaharlal Nehru, whose memorial was established at the site of his long-time home Teen Murti Bhavan.
