Bhadrak (Odisha) May 29: Launching a scathing attack on the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Wednesday asserted that if the saffron party returns to power, both democracy and the Constitution will be jeopardised.

Speaking at election rallies in Odisha's Balasore and Bhadrak parliamentary constituencies, Kharge emphasised, “In this election, if you don't defeat the BJP, then both our Constitution and democracy will be at risk, along with your future.”

Kharge further criticised the current government, stating, “Under the present rule, youth are suffering the most. Unemployment rates are high, and there is a crisis across the nation. However, Modiji seems indifferent to these issues. His sole focus is on retaining power.”
