Lok Sabha Elections 2024: A Mandate to Protect or Rewrite India’s Constitution?

The 2024 Lok Sabha elections in India have reignited the debate over the ruling BJP’s alleged plans to amend the Constitution. With their bold slogan “Abki Baar 400 Paar” (This time, beyond 400 seats), the BJP seems to be aiming for a sweeping victory that could give them the two-thirds majority required for constitutional changes.

Rahul Gandhi, leader of the opposition Congress party, has accused the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi of harbouring a “hidden agenda” to destroy the Constitution drafted by Dr B.R. Ambedkar. He cites recent remarks by BJP leaders like Anant Kumar Hegde, Lallu Singh, and others, who have openly called for constitutional amendments. The controversy deepened after a viral video showed actor and BJP candidate Arun Govil stating that the Constitution has changed over time and that the BJP would go for changes if needed.

Even the Prime Minister’s economic advisory council chief, Vivek Debroy, had previously advocated for a new Constitution. The opposition alleges that the BJP’s real motive is to impose a singular, authoritarian leadership and undermine the constitutional principles of equality, justice, and civil rights.

As the nation gears up for a crucial election, the battle lines are drawn between those who want to protect the Constitution and those accused of wanting to destroy it.
