New Delhi, Jan 15: President Droupadi Murmu visited the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya here on Monday and said it “rekindled many memories” and also offered new ways to engage with the country’s past.
The president became the “first visitor” to the ‘Narendra Modi Gallery’, which will be opened to the public from January 16, the Culture Ministry said in a statement. She visited the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya and “saw the displays there with deep interest”, it said.
During her visit spanning nearly one-and-a-half hour, President Murmu also visited the Constitution Gallery in the old building of the Teen Murti Bhavan which houses the museum.
“My visit to the Prime Ministers’ Sangrahalaya was a pleasant and illuminating experience. The galleries dedicated to the past Prime Ministers of India not only rekindled many memories but also offered new ways to engage with our past. As the first visitor of the gallery devoted to Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, I was glad to see his contributions to the various spheres of nation-building coherently showcased in one place. The use of advanced technology makes the content all the more engaging,” the Rashtrapati Bhavan quoted the president as saying in a post on X.
The Rashtrapati Bhavan also shared photographs of her visit in a post on X.
Prime Minister Modi responded to her post on X and urged the youngsters to visit the museum.
a“Glad that Rashtrapati Ji visited the PM Sangrahalaya, which gives a glimpse of the life and work of all those who have had the honour to serve as India’s Prime Minister. I would also urge others, especially youngsters, to visit the Sangrahalaya,” he posted.
The president expressed her appreciation for the Sangrahalaya and also wrote in the visitor’s book.
“I am convinced that every Indian citizen who comes here and sees the various galleries of the Sangrahalaya will feel proud,” she wrote. The ‘Narendra Modi Gallery’ is located on the ground floor of the Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya here and its opening will come days ahead of the consecration ceremony at the Ram temple in Ayodhya on January 22.
The construction of the Ram temple and the rejuvenation of other temples has been showcased as part of a section called ‘Sanskriti’.(PTI)
