New Delhi: Congress leader P. Chidambaram on Tuesday slammed BJP ministers for their remarks on changing the Constitution to remove the word secular and “shooting the doctors”, saying this was the “true face” of the BJP.
“MoS (Home) and MoS (Skill Development) reveal the true face of BJP,” Chidambaram said in a series of tweets.
“One will change the Constitution to remove ‘secular’, the other will shoot doctors. They should speak more and tell us what the real BJP is.”
Chidambaram also said: “Mob tried to disrupt an inter-faith marriage at Ghaziabad. Will the two ministers change the Constitution to ban such marriages or shoot the couple?”
Union Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Anantkumar Hegde had said that the BJP has come to power to change the Constitution and will do so in the near future. He also termed secularists were like people without parentage.
Minister of State for Home Affairs Hansraj Ahir made a statement equating senior doctors in a government hospital to Maoists.
“What do the Naxals (Maoists) want? They don’t want democracy. I handle the Home Ministry, so I know it. These people (referring to the senior doctors) don’t want democracy. So they should join Naxals. Why do you stay here? Go there, and then we will shoot you with bullets,” he had said.
