Context: Chief Minister of Telangana said that the governments at the Centre over the years have been suppressing the powers of the State, so there is a need for a new Constitution.
Why the demand for drafting a new constitution is not feasible?
First, Dr. Ambedkar was originally elected from the Bengal assembly, which went to Pakistan after partition. After this, at the behest of Congress, he was elected from the Bombay presidency. This shows the accommodative stance of the biggest party of that time.
Second, the Drafting of the constitution took 2 years, 11 months, and 18 days. During this period, members read the constitution of other nations, consulted experts, drafted and debated the constitution.
Third, Members of the constitutional assembly knew the sufferings of the nation had undergone under the foreign rule. So, they drafted the constitution by putting the nation first. But, today’s leaders tend to choose their party first.
Fourth, Constitution states that India is a “Sovereign Socialist Secular Democratic Republic”, which protects the rights of every section of society. While today’s leaders give priority to particular ideologies and castes. Given this, drafting a new Constitution will be a chaotic exercise and will shut the voices of some sections, especially the vulnerable.
Last, An unelected body was trusted by the Constitution framers to declare the law. The purpose behind that body was not answerable to anyone except the Constitution. The judiciary can adjudicate disputes in an independent, free, fair, and impartial manner.
