New Delhi: By clarifying his earlier remark in which he claimed to reform a new Constitution, the Union Minister Ananth Kumar Hegde said that the Constitution is the supreme for him. He further confirmed that he would never speak against the Parliament.
On Thursday, the Union Minister said to the media, “Regarding the deadlock in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha due to my statement, I want to assure my friends that the Constitution and the Parliament are paramount to me. I can under no circumstance speak against the Parliament.”
Notably, the controversy has been sparked when Hedge said at a public function that the Constitution would be reformed to remove the word “secular” from it. While addressing to the media, he said, “Seculars do not know what their blood is. Yes constitution has given that right to say ‘we are secular and we will say it’. Yes, I know but constitution has been amended many times, we will also amend it. We have come to power for that.”
Meanwhile, following the controversial statements of the minister, the Opposition has started chaos in the ongoing Winter Session of the Parliament. Even, the both houses of the Parliament were adjourned subsequently till noon on Wednesday.
