Noting that all are equal before the law, the Union Minister of State for Human Resource Development said, "In the last about two decades, the way the Constitution has been interpreted and the laws have been interpreted, it requires revisit. Let us revisit them."
He was speaking on "Rule of law and role of BR Ambedkar in nation-building" at an event at Delhi University commemorating the 127th birth anniversary of the Dalit icon and framer of the Constitution.
"The kind of rights that have been given to minorities in the Constitution, still they feel cheated about it. They have the rights to run their institutes, religious institutions, but the majority does not have. Law is equal to all," he said.
It has been close to 70 years since the Constitution was adopted, but "we are not able to internalise it," he said.
Law should spare none to ensure nation building, he added.
"You want to have a strong democratic country, where everyone gets educated. We have the law - Right to Education (Act), but in the last eight years are we able to implement it? We are not. Still millions don't go to school because the law does not have teeth," the junior education minister said.
