“We Are Here To Change The Constitution,” Says Union Minister, Hegde

“We Are Here To Change The Constitution,” Says Union Minister, Hegde

The BJP leader, Anant Kumar Hegde is in another controversy after saying they will soon change the Constitution. The Union Minister said, “The Constitution Is Currently Based On The Thoughts Of BR Ambedkar, We Are Here To Change The Constitution.” At the function  of Koppal district of Karnataka, the 49-year-old minister said while arguing the people to “any person who is Muslim, Christian, Lingayat, Brahmin, or a Hindu feel pride because they know their roots.” Further, Hegde added while speaking “Those who, without knowing about their parental blood and call themselves secular, they don’t have their own identity, They don’t know about their parentage, family or their bloodlines. They are intellectuals”. This event was organised by the Brahman Yuva Parishad.

The Karnataka Congress has said about BJP must face problem in assembly elections of the state next year if they endorse its minister’s views and suggested that if so. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah said Mr. Hegde has not studied the Constitution clearly, he does not know the parliamentary or political language. He must know that each and every person of this country is an Indian, And every religion has equal right.

Anant Kumar Hegde is an RSS member and one-time ABVP activist. He is a five-time Lok Sabha member from Uttar Kannada, who was made a minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet reshuffle in August this year. The party hopes to wrest Karnataka back after losing the only southern state which is ruled by the Congress party in 2013.

Apart from this, Mr Hegde was also in controversy when the case was registered against him earlier this month for allegedly abusing Siddaramaiah at Kittur in Belagavi district. Moreover, previously he slapped a doctor and said to save himself that the doctors were not paying enough attention to his mother, who had suffered multiple fractures after a fall at home.
