Rahul Gandhi further said, it was the most important moment in history when India got her constitution. Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar had given the document, the foundation of India given to the country which was under threat.

Congress President continued saying that What was happening today in the country was a “web of deceit”, the. “BJP operates on the basic idea that lie(s) can be used for political benefit. This is the difference between us and them. We might even lose but we will fight for truth.”

It was apparent that Rahul Gandhi’s comment about senior BJP member was refrence to union minister Anant Kumar Hegde, who recently attacked “secularists” and said the government was there to “change the constitution.

Hedge was quoted as saying that he felt happy because he knew about his blood but he did not know what hye should call those who claimed themselves secular.
