Congress MP Manish Tewari on Tuesday said Union minister Hardeep Singh Puri must read the Constitution of India after the Union minister slammed the Congress for “raking controversies where none exist” after Congress leaders raised questions over PM Modi inaugurating the new Parliament building on May 28.
“Congress has a habit of raking controversies where none exist. While President is the Head of State, PM is the Head of Govt and leads the Parliament on behalf of the Govt, whose Policies are effected in form of Laws. The President is not a Member of either House, whereas PM is,” Hardeep Singh Puri tweeted.
Citing Article 79 of the Constitution, Manish Tewari said, “There shall be a Parliament for the Union which shall consist of the President and two Houses to be known respectively as the council of States and the House of the People. Ministers of the Union must read the Constitution of India very carefully.”
