Rahul Gandhi on Constitution Day:
Rahul Gandhi tweeted on the Constitution Day. At the same time, on the occasion of Constitution Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an indirect attack on other opposition parties including Congress said that political parties which have lost their democratic character cannot protect democracy.
Politics continues on behalf of political parties even on the day of Constitution Day. Congress boycotted the program organized on Constitution Day in the Central Hall of Parliament on Friday, while 14 opposition parties, including the Aam Aadmi Party, also kept a distance from it. The country's oldest party was targeted by the Bharatiya Janata Party for not attending the Congress program. BJP and Amit Malviya called it an insult to Ambedkar.
Bharatiya Janata Party's IT cell chief Amit Malviya said that 14 parties including Congress, Left, TMC, Rashtriya Janata Dal, Shiv Sena, NCP, Samajwadi Party, IUML and DMK have boycotted the 'Constitution Day' celebrations at the Central Hall. The Congress, which created a ruckus during the Nehru Jayanti event, is now leading the boycott. This is an insult to Dr Ambedkar.
Political parties losing their democratic character
On the other hand, while addressing the function organized on Constitution Day in the Central Hall of Parliament, the Prime Minister described family parties as a matter of concern for political parties devoted to the Constitution. "The country has a constitutional democratic tradition and political parties have their own importance in this. Political parties are also a major means of conveying the sentiments of our constitution to the people, but the spirit of the constitution gets hurt when political parties lose their democratic character.
