Congress leader who had warned of ‘rakhtpaat’, compares Modi to Hitler

It is ironical that someone from Congress would accuse others of 'destroying the Constitution' when it was former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi who had brought about the Emergency on 25th June 1975.

Days after Congress leader Shashi Tharoor made a controversial statement on PM Modi comparing him to a scorpion on a Shivlinga and attributing it to anonymous people, another senior Congress leader Mallikarjun Kharge, who had warned of bloodshed if Constitution is changed, compared PM Modi to Hitler for ‘killing the Constitution’.

Kharge was speaking at the ‘Samvidhan Bachao Sammelan’ in Mumbai where he said that efforts are being made to bring in a dictatorship in India, the way Hitler did in Germany. Accusing the BJP and the RSS of destroying the Constitution, Kharge said Constitution does not belong to the people of a particular caste, religion or community, but it belongs to the whole of India.

“Ever since BJP has come to power, it has destroyed freedom of expression and is continuously imposing censors on the press,” Kharge said.

It is ironical that someone from Congress would accuse others of ‘destroying the Constitution’ when it was former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi who had brought about the Emergency on 25th June 1975.

In a Facebook post earlier this year, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had drawn a parallel between Indira Gandhi and Hitler and said that they both had turned democracy into a dictatorship. In fact, Jaitley had written that unlike Hitler, Indira Gandhi had endeavoured to transform India into a “dynastic democracy”.

This is not the first time Congress leaders have indulged in name-calling. The opposition leaders such as Mani Shankar Aiyar have frequently abused Prime Minister Narendra Modi by referring to him ‘Chaiwala’ and ‘Neech Insan’ as an attempt to lower the dignity of Narendra Modi. Congress leaders like Manish Tiwari and Digvijaya Singh have often resorted to using derogatory words against the Prime Minister.

Another abusive Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam has abused Prime Minister Modi several times and recently had used foul language to refer PM Modi as ‘illiterate and uncouth’.
