India is going to hit crisis, which is “a matter of huge concern” for those having confidence in the democracy spirit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said earlier today in a hard and fast attack on the Congress. The Prime Minister slammed the “dynastic parties” at the Constitution Day event, which 14 opposition parties skipper a day after Congress MP Mallikarjun Kharge held a procedure meet in a preface to the following week’s winter session of year.
“Party for the family, by the family… do I need to say more? If a party is run by one family for many generations, then, it isn’t good for a healthy democracy… look at the political parties from Kashmir to Kanyakumari,” said Prime Minister while addressing.
“Dynastic parties are a matter of great concern for those who want to protect the Constitution. India is headed towards a crisis.”

“By dynastic politics, I don’t mean that more than one member of a family can’t enter politics. No… on the basis of potential, with people’s blessings, people can join politics. But if a political party – generation after generation – is run by one family, it becomes a threat for democracy,” said PM Modi taking dig at the Gandhis.
As per the visuals Union Minister Rajnath Singh among others were seen thumping at their desks in their response.
In 2015 as well, PM Modi said, his administration had confronted fights when the Constitution Day was first celebrated. “‘Why are you doing it… what’s the need?’ they had asked,” he said, hammering the opposition, “The day was meant to offer respects to BR Ambedkar for what he did for the country.” The Constitution of India, one of the longest across the world, has a Preamble, 22 sections with 395 articles, and eight schedules. Dr BR Ambedkar assumed a significant part in drafting the Constitution.
The Trinamool Congress, Shiv Sena, and the RJD among other opposition parties skipped the key event today, which was attended by President Ram Nath Kovind and Union Ministers.
The opposition parties which skipped the event included RJD, TMC and Shiv Sena. The event was however attended by President Ram Nath Kovind.
“This government – led by the BJP – does not respect the Constitution… They don’t govern as per the Constitution but want to celebrate Constitution Day… This is a PR event that they started,” Congress MP Manickam Tagore told media.
After Mr Kharge headed the opposition meet on Thursday, each of the 14 opposition parties are ready to join against the government, sources within the party said.
“There is no role for the opposition leaders, no proper invite, and no place or permission to speak at this event,” Mr Khare told media point out at the government.
On issues with TMC and the shifting of Meghalaya MLAs’ switching sides, he said, “It’s not a personal issue it’s about respecting our role. We will work unitedly on a host of issues, including inflation.”
The parliament is set to see a stormy beginning to the winter session of the year.
