CM mocks Rahul’s remarks on democracy, urges self-reflection

Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav took a swipe at Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s recent remarks on democracy and the constitution, suggesting that Gandhi should introspect on his own stance concerning constitutional issues.

Speaking to the media, CM Yadav remarked, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to revoke Article 370 sets a precedent that if any constitutional provision is flawed, it should be amended for the betterment of the region. PM Modi’s government is actively working towards improving the lives of farmers, youth, and the underprivileged. When Rahul Gandhi speaks of ‘constitutional change,’ he should examine his own party’s actions, like overturning the Supreme Court’s decision on Triple Talaq, which effectively altered the Constitution.”

Yadav also highlighted Congress’s past interference with the judiciary’s authority during the emergency period.

He emphasized the Bharatiya Janata Party’s commitment to inclusive development across all sectors of society.

Earlier, Rahul Gandhi, after filing his nomination from Wayanad in Kerala, declared the upcoming election as a battle for democracy and the Indian Constitution. He accused the BJP of undermining these principles while asserting that the Congress and its allies are fighting to uphold them.

Madhya Pradesh’s Lok Sabha elections are scheduled across the first four phases of the total seven, set on April 19, April 26, May 7, and May 13, with vote counting on June 4.
