Asserting that a “very dangerous” process was underway in India, former Vice-President Hamid Ansari on Tuesday said the country’s institutions were under “great threat” and the principles on which the Constitution’s Preamble was drafted were being thrown out.
Hamid Ansari said people were living in “difficult times” and it was important to act because if this continues, “it will be too late to wake up”. “We are living in difficult times. I do not have to go into the details of it, but the bare and honest truth is that the institutions of the republic of India are under great threat,” Hamid Ansari said.
The principles on the basis of which the Preamble of the Constitution was drafted are in the process of being thrown out, Hamid Ansari said. “There is a great deal of sophistry involved in the process so most citizens are slow in picking it up. But the truth is that a very dangerous process is underway. Dangerous for us, the citizens of this country,” Hamid Ansari said.
