Participating in the debate on 'Commitment to the Constitution', Trinamool Congress member Derek O'Brien accused Finance Minister Arun Jaitley of indulging in 'cowboy Constitutionalism' on the issue of obstructions in Parliament.
Brien also got into a spat with Left leaders over his remarks that they cannot question the Right for 'not participating' in the freedom struggle as they have also done the same.
Attacking the BJP over the issue of 'Hindu Rashtra', KC Tyagi (JD-U) cited the low representation of Muslims in political and constitutional posts and castigated some BJP leaders for their 'Pakistan' remarks, reminding that Indian Muslims did not go to Pakistan during partition despite having the option.
"We support you on GST, Insurance Bill (on raising FDI cap to from 26 49 percent). We totally support you on Coal and Mines (Bills). But you should also ask your 5-6 ministers to cooperate with the Constitution. One says former President Abdul Kalam was Muslim yet he was a nationalist. Is being a Muslim some crime? Another one says those who vote for us are Ramzaade (progenies of Ram) while all others are Haramzaade (bastards). Will you take the revenge of what happened with Hindus in Pakistan with Muslims in India," asked Tyagi.
