If BJP wins 2019 Lok Sabha elections, India will become 'Hindu Pakistan': Shashi Tharoor

"If they (BJP) win a repeat in the Lok Sabha our democratic constitution as we understand it will not survive as they will have all the elements they need to tear apart the constitution of India and write a new one," Tharoor was quoted as saying in an event in Thiruvananthapuram.

Tharoor also said that the saffron party will write a new constitution that will pave the way for a nation much like Pakistan, where rights of minorities are not respected.Tharoor also launched a scathing attack at Prime Minister Narendra Modi by saying that he is more interested in political campaigning than in running the country.
