During BJP rule, Constitution under attack: Selja

Agency News

Chandigarh, Feb 9 : Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee president and Rajya Sabha MP Kumari Selja here on Sunday said that in BJP government's regime, constitution is being attacked constantly. The path of equality shown by Constitution is being changed today under the RSS agenda, she alleged. Ms Selja was speaking at a function organised to commemorate the birth anniversary of Guru Ravidas at Guru Ravidas Bhawan, Panchkula. "We are remembering Guru Ravidas ji, who raised voice against untouchability and discrimination which was a big challenge many years ago.

Not only he raised his voice against untouchability and discrimination, he went beyond that and gave a message for the entire humanity," she said. "However, we have other challenges before us because Constitution is under constant attack. Many great men including Jawahar Lal Nehru, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad together joined Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar in giving constitution that guarantees freedom as well as equality and the right to live with dignity," she said.

"Under the RSS agenda, Constitutional values and constitutional authorities are under pressure and changes to the Constitution are being brought in that endanger our rights. These people talk about Hinduism. The true essence of the Hindu religion is a belief in equality and embracing diverse viewpoints with equanimity , but BJPs religion is to spread casteism and divide brotherhood, " the Congress leader said.
