In a veiled attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Rahul Gandhi today said India becoming a Republic on January 26, 1950 meant that it would not accept whims of any emperor nor a dictator.

“On this day when we accepted the principles of freedom struggle and the great values of our heritage in the form of our Constitution, this meant that no emperor’s whims and any form of dictatorship would any longer prevail. In this free world of ideas, no ideology will be imposed upon anyone in the country,” he said.
