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 are continuously imposing censors on the press,” Kharge said.

"The Constitution does not belong to the people of a particular caste, religion or community but belongs to every Indian equally. Which right to freedom has been respected in parliamentary democracy by the BJP government?" he questioned.

"The BJP hasn't been able to walk four steps in the right direction in the past four years. They don't have any right to point a finger at the Congress and ask us what has been done in the past 70 years," Kharge, Congress general secretary in charge of Maharashtra added.

Kharge claimed that since the BJP came to power, it had destroyed freedom of speech and expression was constantly curbing the press.

"The BJP is trying to bring dictatorship in the country. PM Modi wants to do to India what Adolf Hitler did to Germany. The Constitution is in danger and we need to fight the BJP's attempts to destroy it," he claimed.

Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam, speaking at the function, said there had been repeated attacks on the principles which formed the foundation of the country.

"Constitution of India is the soul of the country which is being killed today. Since the past 4 years, the BJP has launched a new rule according to its own will which is not in sync with the law and order of the country," he said.

Nirupam said the Congress will ensure that the message of the Samvidhaan Bachao Parishad reaches masses effectively. Congress MP Hussain Dalwai said the country will be safe only if its Constitution is protected, and urged people to fight and protect it.
