Why is this so? Can any Member explain?The Constitution of India came into effect on 26th January, 1950. At that time, Jawaharlal Nehru was India's Prime Minister. Many of the Constitution-makers were deeply influenced by Nehru's utopian ideas and they tried to incorporate these in the Constitution. Even then, during his lifetime, Nehru amended the Constitution seventeen times. His successor, Lalbahadur Shastri never attempted to do the same. Nehru's daughter amended the Constitution twenty-nine times. His grandson did it eleven times. The blue-eyed man of the family, Dr. Manmohan Singh did it six times.
So, amending (changing) Constitution is quite normal to the Congress leaders. Even then, Shri Mallikarjun Kharge, the leader of Congress in the Lok Sabha, threatened the ruling party. He said: ''There will be bloodshed if an attempt is made to change the Constitution.'' (Source:ANI)
