Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday dropped in for a surprise visit to the new Parliament building, where construction work is in its final stages.
Part of the Central Vista redevelopment, the new Parliament building is being built by Tata Projects Limited, featuring larger halls, a library and committee rooms.
Sources say the Prime Minister spent more than an hour at the site and inspected various works.
The Prime Minister was accompanied by Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla.
The new building, which was earlier expected to be completed by November last year, is likely to be inaugurated soon.
A series of pictures showed the Prime Minister interacting with construction workers, standing amid the big halls, and taking a tour of the place.
