In a first-of-its-kind initiative in FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO), Hyderabad Chapter a group of 75 members of Hyderabad visited the Parliament House in New Delhi on Tuesday. The objective of the visit was to familiarise its members with Parliament Procedures and witness Parliament Session.
The building itself is a historic one and is a colonial-era building. Further witnessing the Parliament House of the largest Republic and the largest democracy of the world is an experience of a different kind, shares Shubhraa Maheshwari, FLO Chairperson.
The group witnessed Loksabha session sessions twice. It is an unusual opportunity. Normally we get to meet only a couple of MPs or Ministers at a time. Seeing hundreds of Parliamentarians working together in the Lower house was a unique and exhilarating experience, said Shubhraa Maheshwari, FLO Chairperson who led the delegation to the Parliament House.
Meeting with the Honourable Speaker of Loksabha, Shri Omji Birla in his personal Chamber was a rare chance for our members. How gracious enough to take time out and host us, she added in a press note issued in the city today.
The members were shown the Parliament Building. We got the opportunity to get pics clicked with many Parliamentarians and Ministers in the iconic corridors of Parliament House. Some of the parliamentarians whom we met include Anurag Thakur, Smriti Irani, Jyotindriya Scindhia, Gautam Gambhir, our own Ranjit Reddy, Kishen Reddy, MPs from North East, Maharashtra.
He had a chance to experience the grandness of Rashtrapati Bhawan. The members were in awe of the grand halls, ornate architecture, and a sense of history and tradition, Shubhraa added.
The guided tour of The President House entailing the traditions of the biggest house worldwide was undoubtedly a *once-in-a-lifetime* experience for the members, Shubhraa adds.
Members had the experience to taste the culinary expertise of Roseate Hotels and Resorts. It was one full-day tour, where members had to start their journey at 1.30 am only to return the next day at 12.30 am. It was hectic but worth a lifetime experience.
