Bharatiya Janata Party president Amit Shah on Monday said ‘Save the Constitution’ campaign launched by the Congress chief Rahul Gandhi was an attempt to save the dynasty that the opposition party’s ‘Modi hatred’ has turned into ‘India hatred.’
BJP president’s statement came hours after Rahul Gandhi launched an attack towards the Prime Minister saying the latter was only concerned about becoming PM again, not about the crimes happening across the country or atrocities on Dalits.
In a statement hours after Gandhi launched the attack on Narendra Modi, Amit Shah said if there is one political party that has infringed the Constitution in letter and spirit over the years and that is the opposition party.
He stated that the Congress’ move to impeach CJI Dipak Misra was a part of their trend to weaken every institution that seeks to maintain its identity.
"Those who do not trust the Army, the judiciary, the Supreme Court, the Election Commission, EVMs, the RBI are now saying democracy is in danger. India has a vibrant democracy and a vibrant Constitution,” the BJP chief said.
"The Congress' Save the Constitution' campaign is nothing but a farce that seeks to perpetuate the rule of dynasty over the rule of democracy. Like in the past, we need to protect the Constitution from the Congress," he added.
"By repeatedly saying the Congress made the Constitution, Rahul Gandhi is carrying forward his family tradition of insulting Dr Ambedkar. The Nehru-Gandhi family insulted him when he was alive and is humiliating him even more now. Shameful and petty," Amit Shah said.
