PM Modi Attacks Opposition Over Allegations On BJP Of Changing Constitution At Rally In Rajasthan

At a poll rally in Rajasthan on Friday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took aim at the opposition parties’ claims that if the BJP wins the next Lok Sabha elections, it will “change the Constitution.” PM Modi stated that even Babasaheb Ambedkar would not be able to eliminate it at this point since his government respected it.

PM Modi said during an election rally in Barmer, “The Constitution of the country is everything for the (BJP) government and even if Babasaheb Ambedkar himself comes, he cannot abolish the Constitution.” The prime minister also alleged that the Congress was standing with anti-national forces and hit out at the opposition INDIA bloc for “trying to weaken” the country.

Retaliating against the INDIA bloc, Prime Minister Modi said that the Congress party is attempting to “destroy the Constitution” by attempting to declare a national emergency.

The prime minister said, “The Congress tried to destroy the Constitution by imposing Emergency in the country and now it is taking cover in the name of the Constitution to abuse Modi.”

The BJP MP Anantkumar Hegde’s claim that the party requires a two-thirds majority to modify the Constitution prompted Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to accuse last month that the “ultimate goal of Narendra Modi and the BJP is to destroy Babasaheb’s Constitution”.

Hegde’s comments were labelled as “personal opinion” by the BJP, which asked him to elaborate.

The Prime Minister mentioned that the Congress party has included nuclear disarmament in its electoral pledge, but he did not elaborate.

“Should a country like India, whose neighbours on both sides have nuclear weapons, think about eliminating nuclear weapons? I want to ask the Congress, on whose instructions your INDI alliance is working,” he said.

Rahul Gandhi of the Congress spoke at a poll rally in Tamil Nadu earlier in the day, accusing the BJP of trying to amend the Indian Constitution if it were to win an election and take power. Gandhi claimed that if the saffron party continued to hold power at the centre, “they are going to change the Constitution” in an open manner.

The former president of the Congress claimed that although the rest of the world formerly saw India as a model of democracy, it now believes that India no longer has a democracy.
