Rahul Gandhi launches nationwide 'Save the Constitution' campaign

Modi is merely interested in becoming prime minister again even as girls are raped and the rights of Dalits and minorities are under threat, Gandhi said during the Congress' "Save the Constitution" rally in New Delhi. Gandhi said the Modi government had failed to protect the constitutional values, adding his party would do everything to not let that happen. "Parliament was not allowed to run", Gandhi said.

In an apparent reference to the Supreme Court last week rejecting pleas seeking probe into death of judge B H Loya, the ruling party chief said "everyone knows" the reasons for which the judiciary has "invited the wrath of Congress the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty", but he would not get into that.

"Congress made the global reputation of India in 70 years and PM Modi has hurt our image in just four years of his governance, we have to protect it, " he said.

Later, they have also told about the campaign that it has a focused on the rising atrocities against the Dalits in the country.

The Congress President also condemned the government's failure to react on recent rape cases. Rahul said Dalits are angry with Modi because of his ideology.

Paswan, who holds the food and consumer affairs portfolio, said the Congress party lost 2014 election as it "cheated Dalits".

The rally, a campaign, will cover the length and breadth of the country and will end nearly a year later on April 14, the birth anniversary of Dalit icon and father of the Indian Constitution BR Ambedkar. "The people of India will speak their "Mann ki Baat" in 2019", he added.

Soon after his speech, the BJP chief returned fire and said the opposition party's campaign was a farce and actually a "saving dynasty" drive. BJP spokesperson said that Congress was facing impeachment from the people of India and that the dynast party seeks to flout law of the land and wants the law of dynasty to prevail in the country.

"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!"

Congress's rally addresses the apprehensions within the Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes against any slacking of strong bail provisions in the Prevention of Dalit Atrocities Act. "But the Prime Minister is quiet".

The Congress leader said that the BJP-RSS combine is set to dismantle the social security available for SCs, STs and other weaker sections.

Hitting back at Gandhi, BJP President Amit Shah said the "Save the Constitution" campaign is an exercise to save the Gandhi dynasty.
