Congress’ ‘Save the Constitution’ campaign a farce that seeks to perpetuate the rule of dynasty over the rule of democracy

New Delhi, April 23: Mocking the Congress Party campaign, "Save the Constitution", BJP President Amit Shah has asked if the campaign to save the Constitution or the Dynasty and its heir Rahul Gandhi. Terming The Congress Party’s ‘Save the Constitution’ campaign both "ironical and comical" the BJP president alleges that in the history of post-1947 India if there is one political party that has trampled over the Constitution in letter and spirit, time and again, it is the Congress Party.
Amit Shah chose a Facebook post to articulate his thoughts in a more clearer manner to reach to the masses. In his FB post, Shah says that the Indian Army has repeatedly been the Congress’ target. During the UPA years, a Chief of Army Staff was targeted and the entire Army was dragged into political slugfests.
Today, Taking his campaign 'Save The Constitution' a step forward, Rahul Gandhi personally attacked PM Modi saying that Narendra Modi's style of governance has destroyed the social fabric of India. All institutions have been subverted for political gains, said Gandhi. The Congress President reiterated that important issues related to women safety, Dalit protection and the welfare of the poor have been completely neglected by the Modi government.
Shah ridiculed the Congress saying that 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!' Shah added that India has a vibrant democracy and a vibrant Constitution and the Congress’ ‘Save the Constitution’ campaign is nothing but a farce that seeks to perpetuate the rule of the dynasty over the rule of democracy! Like in the past, we need to protect the Constitution from the Congress.
Attacking the Congress' newly found weapon of slandering judiciary and Impeachment motion on the Chief Justice of India, Amit Shah says that the current buzzword for the Congress and their friends is ‘impeachment.’ The judiciary, which is an institution that is trusted by 125 crore Indians has invited the wrath of Congress and the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty in particular. I will not get into the reasons (which everybody knows) but I will say that this is a part of a larger trend to demonize and weaken every institution that seeks to maintain its individual identity and not kowtow to the Dynasty.
Highlighting the Modi-Hatred Shah says- "The Congress Party has yet again taken the only path it knows very well- of spreading hate and divisions in our society. Mr. Rahul Gandhi and his party should stop their theatrics and aggression at the earliest. It is becoming increasingly clear that their Modi hatred is fast turning into India hatred. Blinded by disdain for the Prime Minister, they are using the choicest of words and phrases to show India in the bad light",
Shah further says that in the last four years, when the Congress has been facing defeat after defeat, the party is now training its guns (not the Bofors kind) on the Election Commission. The sanctity of the polling process has been questioned. Never for a minute has the Congress introspected- why is it that the people are rejecting us.
Time changes, the context changes but the means, as well as the ends, remain the same- discredit any institution that comes in the way of furthering the rule of the Dynasty.
The night of 25th June 1975 is unforgettable in the annals of history. That time, the entire Constitution was hijacked and held hostage to the whims and fancies of one leader. Even that assault on our Constitutional democracy came in the wake of our challenging the malpractices of no less than Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
Congress’ commitment, or lack of it, towards our democracy is also seen in the ways the party has used Article 356 since Independence. In 1957, when Pandit Nehru was the Prime Minister and Mrs. Indira Gandhi the Congress President, the Communist Government in Kerala was dismissed. From the Telugu Desam Party to the Socialists to the Akali Dal, no party has escaped this insult. Just because the Congress did not like a non-Congress government, it was dismissed and their leaders hounded.
Amit Shah came down heavily on Rahul Gandhi's claim that "Congress made the Constitution".
Shah says that Rahul is just continuing his family legacy of humiliating Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. The BJP President stated that the indisputable fact is- apart from the Constitution, the Congress also has a disdain for the maker of the Constitution, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. No wonder they have made every effort to deviate from the Constitution given by respected Babasaheb. It is well known how Pandit Nehru personally ensured the defeat of Dr. Ambedkar in not one but two elections.
It is also no coincidence that in 1997, the year Mrs. Sonia Gandhi took primary membership of the Congress the Congress-Third Front Government took away promotional benefits of SC/ST employees! It was the Vajpayee Government that amended Article 16(4A) of the Constitution and ensured justice to SC/ST employees. Congress party represents all forms of corruption that are prevalent in our society.
