Family parties are a matter of concern for those who believe in democracy: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a program organized on the occasion of Constitution Day in Parliament on 26 November, said that India is moving towards a kind of crisis in the form of family based parties. “India is heading towards a crisis which is a matter of concern for those devoted to the Constitution, a matter of concern for those who believe in democracy and that is family parties,” he said.

He said that this Constitution Day should also be celebrated because it gives us an opportunity to evaluate whether our path is right or not.
