Hyderabad, February 7: Slamming Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao over his remarks that the Constitution should be rewritten, BJP leader and former MLC N Ramchander Rao said the party will file sedition cases against the TRS supremo.
Rao said Babasaheb Ambedkar and many other academicians, legal teams and politicians dedicated so much effort to writing the Constitution. The Supreme Court has given the verdict that the basic structure of the Constitution should not be changed, then how can the chief minister demand the same.
"It is against the spirit of the Constitution and spirit of India. BJP thinks there is a seditious angle in the statement of KCR. It is an insult to Ambedkar and others who wrote the constitution," the BJP leader said.
He further said BJP has decided to take legal action and file cases in all the courts of Telangana and also to demonstrate to the court during the lunch hour when the court starts Physically. The programme has been made by the legal cell of BJP in the presence of State President Bandi Sanjay.
"Under section 124, We are going to file the sedition cases as CM KCR has said he does not have faith in Constitution. He took oath on Constitution and we are going to interpret this way and file cases," N Ramchander Rao said
He alleged that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government was harassing the BJP workers filing false cases. He said the party is going to fight against this also and give legal assistance to the workers.
Stirring up a controversy, K Chandrashekar Rao had said that the time has come that the Constitution in India needs to be rewritten.
"We have to rewrite our Constitution. Nayi Soch, Naya Samvidhan should be brought in. The Constitution needs to be strengthened," he said while addressing a press conference on the union budget.
KCR also stated that many countries in the world have also made changes in their constitution
