The Forward Bloc today stepped up attack on the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre accusing it of sabotaging the Constitution and basic principles as it has little faith in democracy.
"The Narendra Modi-led government is simply sabotaging the Constitution of India by negating its basic principles," Fiorward Bloc National Secretary G Devarajan said at a 3-day national workshop of the party on its second day here.
As per the Preamble of the Constitution "we are committed to build a sovereign, secular, socialist and democratic republic, but Modi government is subjugating sovereignty by accepting the dictats of external forces in the name of bilateral agreements such as Logistic Exchange Memorandum of Agreement (LEMOA) with the US," he alleged.
"The minorities and dalits are living under severe fear psychosis due to violent attacks in the name of religion and the food habits of the people. By doing so, the government is destroying the country's secular values," claimed Devarajan.
By privatising the national assets and disinvesting the public sector units, the NDA government is diluting the principles of socialism, the Forward Bloc leader said.
