Former prime minister took a dig at his successor on Tuesday for his remarks hailing the Constitution, saying "the proof of the pudding is in the eating" and the way the Centre has behaved in Maharashtra it is not certain that constitutional norms are safe.

Asked about Prime Minister Modi hailing the Constitution, Singh said, "Well I think the proof of the pudding is in the eating. The way the central government has behaved in Maharashtra, it is not certain that constitutional norms are safe in the hands of present establishment."

On the Supreme Court ordering that the floor test in Maharashtra assembly for Chief Minister to prove his majority in the House will be conducted on Wednesday, Singh said whatever is the decision of the court, it has to be respected.
