Congress President Rahul Gandhi said Thursday that the "constitution, the foundation of our country, is under threat". 

"The Constitution, the foundation of our country is under threat, it is under attack directly, statements are being made by senior members of BJP and it is under attack surreptitiously from the back and it's our duty, duty of Congress party and every single Indian to defend it," he said. 

Gandhi was speaking at the 133rd anniversary of the founding of the Congress party.

"What is happening today in our country is a web of deceit," Rahul added. 

"The BJP operates on the basic idea that lies can be used for political benefit and it is the difference between us and them, we might not do well, we might even lose but we will not give up the truth," he said.
