New Delhi:Congress leader and member of Parliament from Thiruvananthapuram ShashiTharoor seems to have stirred a hornet's nest by saying that "democratic constitution" of India will not survive if the BJP comes back to power in 2019 LokSabha elections.

Tharoor said that the BJP has "elements" that may "tear apart" the Constitution and write a new one."If they (BJP) win a repeat in the LokSabha our democratic constitution as we understand it will not survive as they will have all the elements they need to tear apart the constitution of India & write a new one," Tharoor reportedly said.

"That new one will be the one which will enshrine principles of Hindu Rashtra, that'll remove equality for minorities, that will create a Hindu Pakistan and that isn't what Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and great heroes of freedom struggle fought for," he further said. Tharoor's remark left the BJP fuming and the saffron party demanded an apology from Rahul Gandhi for it.

"Rahul Gandhi must apologise for what ShashiTharoor said. Congress was responsible for creation of Pakistan because of its ambitions yet again it has gone ahead to demean India and defame Hindus of India," BJP spokesperson SambitPatrasaid.
