Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, a name often associated with controversies, has once again found himself in the midst of a storm. But this time, his quarrel isn’t with political rivals or opponents; it’s with the very heart of our nation—the Constitution itself! Hold onto your hats; this one’s a doozy.
So, what’s the fuss all about, you ask? Well, Adhir Ranjan has raised eyebrows by claiming that the copies of the Constitution given to Members of Parliament (MPs) lacked two crucial words: “Secular” and “Socialist” in the Preamble. He’s alleging that this omission was no accident—it was a deliberate act.
Adhir Ranjan, the Congress leader, passionately declared, “The new Constitution copies which were given to us, the Constitution copies holding which we entered the Parliament, the Preamble of that Constitution does not have the words Secular and Socialist.” He went on to say, “We know that these two words were included in 1976 but if someone gives us the Constitution today and it doesn’t contain the words Socialist and Secular then is a matter of concern. They have done this very carefully. If you try to say something then they will say that this is how it was from the start but their intentions are doubtful.”

Picture this: MPs were bestowed with a hamper each, complete with a copy of the Constitution, a commemorative coin featuring the new Parliament, and a postage stamp on the first day of the new Parliament House of India. Talk about a fancy welcome!
Chowdhury expressed his eagerness to raise the issue in Parliament but claimed he didn’t get the chance to do so. However, there’s a twist in this tale. The Leader of the Opposition (LoP) did read out the words “secular” and “socialist” while reading from the Constitution copy on day 2 of the special session in the new Parliament. Intriguing, isn’t it?
Now, you might be wondering what the BJP leaders have to say about this brouhaha. Well, they’re not sitting idly by. Some have chimed in, stating that the copies of the Constitution distributed were in line with the original copy of the Constitution, not the ‘changed’ version that Indira Gandhi allegedly forced upon the nation in 1976.
Hold your horses, though! Whether these claims are valid or not is a different story altogether. But here’s a thought for you, dear PM Modi—why not grant Adhir Ranjan’s ‘wish’ for once?
See, the Constitution our forefathers envisioned didn’t include the words “Socialist” and “Secular.” These words were deliberately inserted in 1976, and nobody has cared to remove them since then! It’s been a cozy 47 years since, and perhaps it’s high time for a bit of a change, don’t you think?
In a world of political complexities, this curious case of the missing words offers a fascinating glimpse into the heart of our nation’s foundation. Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury may be known for stirring the pot, but this time, he’s serving up a question that makes you ponder: should we stick to the 1976 script, or is it time to revisit the essence of our Constitution?
The debate is on, and as the nation watches, it’s up to our leaders to decide whether they want to preserve history or pen a new chapter in the story of India’s democracy. Sometimes, it’s the simplest words that spark the most profound conversations, and in this case, “Secular” and “Socialist” have certainly taken center stage.
In a world filled with complex issues, this controversy reminds us that even the most fundamental aspects of our democracy are not immune to change and evolution. So, whether you’re on Team Adhir Ranjan or siding with the BJP leaders, one thing is clear: the Constitution remains a living document, subject to interpretation, revision, and, yes, even the occasional missing word.
