The Karnataka MP had said that the ruling BJP was “here to change the Constitution” and remove the word “secular” from it.
Yesterday, parliamentary proceeding witnessed stormy scenes, which also led adjournment of the house several times.
Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad lashed out at the government and the Bharatiya Janata Party and said if any person lacked faith in the Indian Constitution, he did not deserve to be in the House or in the government.
“The Minister has no trust in the Constitution and has no right to be the minister. He has no right to be a Member of Parliament either,” he asserted.
