Shiv Sena wants Deletion of Words Secular, Socialist from Constitution


Mumbai, Jan 28: BJP will face flak from the opposition parties after its ally Shiv Sena demanded the words "Socialist" and "Secular" to be removed from the Preamble of the Constitution of India.

The statement came two days after the Centre was criticised for an advertisement released by the Information and Broadcasting Ministry for the Republic Day carrying a picture of the Preamble of the Constitution of India without the words "secular" and "socialist".

Welcoming the exclusion of two words from the Republic Day advertisement, Sena MP Sanjay Raut said that though the words had been missed inadvertently, but it honours the feelings of people. The country belongs to Hindus and the words should be deleted permanently from the Preamble of the Constitution.

This statement will give sleepless night to the BJP from today.
