Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today claimed that the BJP will change the Constitution and end the reservation system if it is voted to power again in 2024.
Speaking during the Jan Jagran Abhiyan in Bhopal, Digvijay Singh stated that Congress is at odds with the ideology of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
He reiterated that Hindutva had nothing to do with Hinduism.
“Veer Savarkar, in his book, had said that Hinduism has nothing to do with Hindutva. He never considered cow as ‘mata‘ (mother) and had no problem in consuming beef,” the Congress leader said.
“Our fight is with the ideology of RSS. If BJP is voted back to power in 2024, they will first change the Constitution and then end reservation,” he added.
The Congress party had launched a countrywide agitation programme ‘Jan Jagran Abhiyan’ on November 14 to expose the mismanagement of the economy by the Centre.
Meanwhile, Union Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar has said that the Centre is not disappointed after withdrawing the three farm laws, and “will move forward again”. The Parliament repealed the controversial agricultural laws in November after months of protests by farmers.
Speaking at an event in Maharashtra on Friday, Tomar blamed “some people” for the scrapping of the controversial laws. “We brought the agriculture amendment laws. But some people did not like these laws, which, after 70 years after Independence, were a big reform under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership,” the agriculture minister was quoted as saying by local media.
“But the government is not disappointed… we moved a step back and we will move forward again because farmers are India’s backbone,” he said.
