Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pitch for a “new political culture” has been lauded by Union Minister of Petroleum & Natural Gas and Steel Dharmendra Pradhan. Praising Prime Minister Modi’s announcement to build a museum for all former Prime Ministers, he called it a ‘part of New India’. In his tweet, Pradhan writes that New India is an India which honors every contribution made towards taking the nation forward.  He also added that Prime Minister Narendra Modi believes that India has been made by collective efforts of leaders and people and every Prime Minister’s legacy should be honored, preserved and showcased.

“Hon. PM Shri @narendramodi believes, India has been made by the collective efforts of leaders and people. Every PM’s legacy should be honoured, preserved and showcased,” Pradhan, who is also the Minister for Petroleum and Natural Gas, said in a tweet.

Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi pitched for a “new political culture” to get rid of “political untouchability”. He was speaking during an event to release a book on former Prime Minister Chandra Shekhar. During the occasion he announced that a grand museum dedicated to all the former Prime Ministers of the country will be built in Delhi.  He also invited families of former Prime Ministers to share aspects of the lives of former PMs. The PM added that there was an attempt in the past to diminish the legacy of some prime ministers as part of a strategy. Earlier, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had acknowledged the roles of previous Prime Ministers and Government both from the Red fort and in his Parliament speech.

The “Museum on Prime Ministers of India” will be set up in the premises of Teen Murti Estate. The museum would be a single institution where the visitors can learn about the Prime Minister’s Office, its evolution, role & centrality to governance at the Union level, and also about the individual Prime Ministers. It will provide an interactive and informative experience to the visitors and youth of India through state of the art audio-visual technology and effective modes of communication.
