Congress President Rahul Gandhi attacked Modi government over Union Minister Anant Kumar Hegde’s “amend the Constitution” remarks, saying it was distressing to see country’s foundation under attack by BJP members both directly and surreptitiously.
“It is distressing to see that this document — the foundation of our country, given to us by Congress and Ambedkar (Bhimrao Ambedkar) — is under attack. Attacks are being directly and surreptitiously made by senior members of the BJP,” Mr Gandhi said during the Congress Foundation Day celebrations.
“What is happening in our country is a web of deceit. BJP operates on the basic idea that a lie can be used for political benefits.
