Former Uttarakhand Chief Minister and senior Congress leader Harish Rawat has accused the BJP of trying to change the country’s Constitution.

Addressing a public meeting in temple town of Rishikesh on Sunday, Harish Rawat said the BJP at the Centre had a gameplan to change the country’s Constitution. He said the Constitution framed by Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar had safeguarded the rights of Dalits and other deprived sections of society and BJP wanted to bring a change in it. He said Dalits in the country were living in fear under the BJP rule.

Referring to Uttarakhand, former Rawat charged state the BJP government with discontinuing pro public schemes started by him.

“Several of schemes meant for the poor like Kanya Dhan Yojana, scheme that ensured facilities to poor in government hospital and others started by me have all been discontinued by present state BJP government”, Harish Rawat pointed out.

Rawat appealed the people to support the Congress in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in a big way.
