There is no word ‘socialist secular’ in its preamble. We know that these words were added after an amendment in 1976, but if today someone gives us the Constitution and these words are not there, then it is a matter of concern.”
The Congress leader further said, “His intentions are suspicious. This has been done very cleverly. This is a matter of concern for me. I tried to raise this issue but I did not get a chance to raise this issue.”

What happened in the new Parliament yesterday?
Lok Sabha proceedings in the new Parliament House began with the Women’s Reservation Bill. This bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha and the Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that this bill will now be known as Nari Shakti Vandan Act. After this, when opposition leader Adhir Ranjan Choudhary got up to speak, he said that this bill was introduced during the Congress government and it has been passed in the Lok Sabha while it was stuck in the Rajya Sabha."text-align: justify;">The MPs from the ruling party raised objection regarding this. Then Adhir Ranjan Choudhary told PM Modi that his/her behavior will be known as to what thoughts each person has in the House. Just look at these people. They are not even respecting your words. This kind of behavior is a direct insult to the Prime Minister.
