AAP to observe Samvidhan Bachao, Tanashahi Hatao Divas today: Rai

Sunday, 14 April 2024 | Staff Reporter | New Delhi

AAP leader and Delhi minister Gopal Rai on Saturday said the party will observe ‘Samvidhan Bachao, Tanashahi Hatao Divas’ across the country on the birth anniversary of B R Ambedkar on April 14.  The party workers will read the preamble of the Constitution and an oath to save the founding document of the country, Rai said at a press conference on Saturday. While the Delhi BJP has slammed the AAP, saying the Arvind Kejriwal’s party has now dragging the names of the nation’s dignitaries into their political disputes. This shows how desperate this party after the arrest of the Kejriwal linked to the money laundering case in the liquorgate scam policy. It is very sad and condemnable to announce a political campaign under the name of ‘Save Constitution’ on the day of Dr. Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar’s Jayanti, as done by Minister Gopal Rai today,” Sachdeva said.

Earlier, Rai said that the BJP-led central government is “attacking our democracy and constitution”.  To counter that, we need to be united, Rai said.

 “On Sunday, we will be holding a one-day programme -- Samvidhan Bachao, Tanashahi Hatao Divas -- where the AAP workers will gather at party offices in their states and take an oath to save our democracy and constitution,” he said.

 The event will be held at the party offices in the state capitals across the country, the AAP leader said. The programme is being held on the advice of Kejriwal. In another message from the jail, Kejriwal had asked AAP MLAs and volunteers to work to ensure that the people of Delhi face no problems, Rai told reporters on Wednesday.

 Rai had said that on April 14, all AAP workers across the country will gather in front of posters or photographs of Ambedkar, the architect of the Constitution, and take a pledge to save the Constitution.

“Arvind Kejriwal and his associates are swearing by the Constitution today, why did they not pay attention to the respect of the Constitution when they were arbitrarily changing government policies by neglecting constitutional provisions, making arbitrary appointments to government positions, and disrupting Republic Day by neglecting the Constitution?, said Sachdeva while reacting on the AAP.

 The AAP’s national convener Arvind Kejriwal is lodged in Tihar jail in connection with a money-laundering case linked to the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy. Terming the act as misuse of agencies by the central government, the AAP has carried out protests and agitation in Delhi and other parts of the country.
