After ruckus in Parliament, Anantkumar Hegde tenders ‘apology’; know why
After much ruckus in Parliament over the ‘change in constitution’ remark, Union Minister Anantkumar Hegde apologized in parliament today.
He had earlier asserted that ruling BJP will “soon change the Constitution” as it mentions ‘secular’.
The opposition protested loudly in Parliament for a second disrupting both Houses as they demanded that Hegde be sacked.
He had earlier told reporters, “I want to assure my friends that the Constitution is supreme to me, Parliament is supreme to me.”
The government had distanced itself from Hegde’s comments yesterday, with union minister Vijay Goel telling the Rajya Sabha, “The Government does not subscribe to views expressed by Hegde.”
It did not placate the Congress, which continued to disrupt Parliament on Wednesday and protested at the Gandhi statue in Parliament house this morning. >
