New Delhi, Apr 21 (UNI) Criticising the statement of RSS chief K S Sudarshan that the Constitution had miserably failed to fulfill the aspirations of the people, the Congress today asked the Opposition BJP if it endorses his views and what its 'real views' are on the Constitution of India.
''Since the RSS is an organisation that has an inherently fascist disposition, such statements from its General Secretary have ominous portents,'' AICC spokesman Manish Tewari told mediapersons, while reacting to the statement made by Mr Sudarshan at a book release function in Mumbai on Saturday. Mr Sudarshan had exhorted the BJP, in the presence of leader of opposition L K Advani, to work towards effecting drastic changes to the Constitution of India to make it suit to the needs of the country.
''Given the diversity of India, our existing Constitution should be changed drastically and it is necessary to bring about political stability in the country,'' Mr Sudharshan had said.
Saying that it was completely 'perplexing' as to what kind of changes that Mr Sudarshan was talking about, Mr Tewari asked the BJP if it believed in the Constitution of India, agreed with his exhortation that drastic changes were required to the Constitution and if it concurred with the RSS chief that the Constitution had failed to provide political stability in the country.
''Given the symbiotic relationship between the RSS and the BJP and the fact that the BJP implements both the open and hidden agenda of the RSS, it is imperative for the BJP to inform the nation what are its real views on the Constitution.'' Mr Tewari said Mr Sudarshan's remarks in fact ''hark back to the days leading up to March 23, 1933 when Adolf Hitler through a legislative fiat, called 'The Enabling Act', effectively abrogated the German Constitution.''
