He added that if Tharoor loves Pakistan so much then he should move there.Tharoor, on Wednesday, had stated at an event in Thiruvananthapuram that “our” democratic Constitution will not survive if BJP wins a repeat in the Lok Sabha elections, as they have all elements needed to tear apart the Constitution of India and write a new one.He further stated that the new Constitution will be the one which will enshrine the principles of Hindu Rashtra, which will remove equality for minorities and will create a Hindu Pakistan , which was not what Mahatama Gandhi, Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Azad and the great heroes of India’s freedom struggle fought for.
