Dynastic parties are a matter of concern for the people committed to the Constitution and are against the spirit of democracy, PM Narendra Modi Said at the Constitution Day celebrations in Parliament on Friday. Modi also paid tribute to the security personnel who lost their lives during the Mumbai terror attacks on November 26, 2008.

“Dynastic parties are a matter of concern for the people committed to the Constitution. Look at the dynastic political parties from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, it is against the democratic spirit. Democracy,” he said in an apparent reference to Congress.

He also said that the constitutional spirit gets hurt when political parties lose their democratic character. The event, organized as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to commemorate 75 years of India’s independence, was boycotted by the opposition parties. Modi, however, said that the function was not organized by the government but by an institution.

The Congress and several other opposition parties had decided to boycott the function a day earlier. “The BJP is continuously attacking the constitutional rights. We want to clarify that if the opposition or its leaders are invited, we should not only invite us to sit and listen,” Congress’ Anand Sharma said, adding that Constitution Day is not a day to attack the opposition.

Sources said DMK, Shiv Sena, RSP, NCP, SP, TMC, CPI, CPI(M), RJD, JMM and IUML were among the parties that did not participate in the event. A TMC leader said none of its MPs were in Delhi to attend the event at this time.
