Chamarajanagar(Karnataka): While addressing Janaadesha rally here ahead of the Assembly elections due in May in Karnataka, AICC President Rahul Gandhi on Saturday asserted that his party will not allow the BJP led NDA government at the Centre to change the constitution to suit their needs.
‘They (the BJP) has started a new fashion of attacking the Constitution. Dr BR Ambedkar fought for the Constitution and they want to change it. We warn them we will not allow this. No matter how much they try, we will not let them change it” Rahul said.
Continuing his attack against the BJP for not waiving the farm loans, Rahul said “Modi government stole your money and gave it to the rich and they write off Rs 2.5 lakh crore of the loan provided to capitalists.
Rahul added Prime Minister Narendra Modi comes to Karnataka and talks about corruption even as former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa and four of his former colleagues who went to jail on corruption charges, share the dais with him”.
Referring to the promises made by Narendra Modi ahead of the last Lok Sabha election, Rahul said, “the word should not be empty or untrue and must have some weight and you must stick to it'”.
On the contrary, the Congress government led by Siddaramaiah in Karnataka has fulfilled the promises made to the people and if voted back to power in the next Assembly election it would double its achievements, Rahul said.
Gandhi termed the Congress workers as party’s backbone and promised that they would be respected and get a role in the government. Those who fight for the Party ideology would be protected, the Congress President added.
