Opposition’s concern is ‘Hindi, Hindutva, Hindustan’ agenda, won’t ever support it: Tharoor

With BJP leader Jyoti Mirdha issuing a clarification over her “samvidhanik badlav” remark, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Thursday said the opposition’s concern stems from the “Hindi, Hindutva, Hindustan” agenda of the proponents of Hindu Rashtra.

The Congress had on Tuesday said that after Anantkumar Hegde, another leader of the ruling BJP, Jyoti Mirdha, openly said that the party’s aim is to change the Constitution

The Congress said the remark exposed the “deliberate strategy” of the BJP.

Tharoor on X shared an undated video of Mirdha, the BJP candidate from Rajasthan’s Nagaur in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls, showing her purportedly talking about the need for the saffron party to secure a majority in both houses of Parliament to be able to make constitutional amendments.

Mirdha later in a post issued a clarification saying that she made the comment in a public meeting on March 31, and that it was “unnecessarily blown out of proportion by some honourable leaders of the opposition.” She also mentioned the 106 amendments made in the Constitution over the years.
