Opposition Parties Protest outside parliament ,Sonia Gandhi reads out Preamble to the constitution
On Tuesday the Opposition parties held protest before the Ambedkar Statue in Parliament and boycotted Prime Minister Modi’s constitution day speech.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi led the protest and read out the Preamble to the Constitution. Former party president Rahul Gandhi and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh were also present.
The Opposition parties are protesting recent developments in Maharashtra, where a BJP-led administration was sworn in on Saturday even though a prospective alliance of opposition parties had chosen a chief minister and seemed poised to claim the right to form a government.
The Congress said it resolved to save the Constitution's soul by not allowing it be mortgaged to an "autocratic government blinded by the insatiable lust for power".
