K Therie condemns

I condemn the BJP Alliance Govt for ignoring the words ‘socialist’ and ‘secular’ in it’s directive to all departments to observe Constitution Day. Non-inclusion of these two principle words which safeguard minorities including Christians, Muslims and other minorities is a surrender of our fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution. The BJP Govt has deliberately removed these two words in favour of Hindutva. It is unfortunate for the people of Nagaland that our representatives are no more than cowards in defending our existence. The ruling political parties are not ignorant. They have no excuse to tell the people that they were not aware of the removal of the two words from the Constitution. They knew it but have deliberately observed Constitution Day without the two words while making no protest to safeguard the people. This is approval of UCC and CAA. I for one strongly condemn the actions of the state govt and removal of the words ‘socialist’ and ‘secular’ from the Preamble to the Constitution of India. Given opportunity Congress will restore.
