Prime Minister Narendra Modi is bothered only about becoming PM again, not about rapes or atrocities on Dalits, Rahul Gandhi said today in a stinging broadside marking the launch of his "save the constitution" campaign.
Rahul also alleged that all the democratic institutions of the country were occupied by RSS ideologues and debate or discussion was being subverted. "By repeatedly saying the Congress made the Constitution, Rahul Gandhi is carrying forward his family tradition of insulting Dr. Ambedkar".
