If day 1 of the Parliament is anything to go by, the winter session is bound to be an interesting one again. If the government and opposition can spar on a harmless subject such as celebrating Dr. B R Ambedkar’s 125th anniversary in the form of Constitution day, it will be APOCALYPSE NOW when GST and other important bills are tabled. Sonia Gandhi minced no words when she said that those who had no role to play in framing the constitution were now swearing to protect it.
She quoted Ambedkar in saying “No matter how good the Constitution is, if the people who implement it are bad, then the Constitution will also turn out bad. And no matter how bad the Constitution is, if the people who implement it are good, it will turn out to be good.” Congress’ attack on the government was along expected lines. The last few days and months have seen a whole deal of brouhaha on the rising intolerance in the country. Constitution day merely provided a formal venue, from where the Gandhis could mouth their oft-repeated attacks on the government.
However, the highlight of the day was Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s statement which put the Congress in the dock. He said “Secularism is the most misused word in the country…This must stop. Because of the rampant misuse of the word, there have been instances of tension in society”.
