Addressing a press conference here, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, "Congress party and its leaders don't trust the Army, the Chief Justice of India, the Supreme Court of the country, the Election Commission, Electronic Voting machines, Reserve Bank of India, Prime Minister's Office and even the President of India".

The campaign aims to highlight alleged attacks on the Constitution and Dalits under the Bharatiya Janata Party-led regime. "If I am allowed to talk for 15 minutes on Rafale issue in Parliament until Modi, he isn't going to have the ability to resist it", mentioned that the 48-year-old Congress chief, who took responsibility for the party in December last year. "Narendra Modi is afraid to speak on the floor of the Parliament".

"Dalits die, atrocities are visited on them and other minorities, women and girls are raped and all he wants to know is that he is PM, and how to stay PM is all he's interested in..."

The Minister was replying to a query about Gandhi's allegations of increasing atrocities on Dalits since Narenddra Modi became the Prime Minister. "The Modi Govt is now destroying these institutions by appointing RSS ideologues to occupy important positions", Rahul Gandhi said. "So, Congress speaking about the constitution is like the "Devil quoting the scriptures", he said on Twitter.

The campaign "Save the Constitution" will run at the village level till April 14, 2019.

However, no matter how much effort the BJP puts in, we will now allow the Government to destroy the institutions in the country. we will throw them out of government in 2019, ' Rahul said in his address to the Congress workers present at the gathering. "Had not the Dalits been given the right to vote, do you think (Congress President) Rahul Gandhi would have gone to their homes and eaten food with them", Paswan told reporters here.

Lekhi accused the Congress of trying to create an impression in the world that India was a banana republic, something it had turned the country into when it was in power, by "disrupting institutions" and added that its institutions were "very strong" and command reverence of people.

He called the campaign a "farce that seeks to perpetuate the rule of dynasty over the rule of democracy". Continuing his tirade against Prime Minister Modi, Rahul further said, "Earlier this government said Beti Padhao, Beti Bachao but now Modiji will say is "Beti Bachao, BJP ke logon se bachao".

"Over 2 crore youths are unemployed, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi speaks of spirituality. Protect them from BJP leaders".
