A day after the Congress party sent a copy of India's Constitution to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, it was returned to the seller. Taking to Twitter, Congress party claimed that the Prime Minister is "not interested in the Constitution." The party had on January 26 sent a copy of the Constitution of India to the PM"s residence and had uploaded a screenshot of Amazon's cart on its Twitter page. However, when the order was not received at the PM's office, Congress party on Monday shared another screenshot of the rejected order, saying "What to do now?"
Dear people of India,— Congress (@INCIndia) January 27, 2020
We tried, but Modi ji is just not interested in the Constitution.

Earlier on January 3, a BJP leader sent a copy of the Constitution of India to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. Taking to Twitter, BJP leader Ashwini Upadhyay asked them to take the oath under Schedule 3 of the Constitution again after the three protested against the Citizenship Amendment Act.
The Congress party on Sunday took a dig at Prime Minister Modi by urging him to 'read the Constitution.' The grand old party shared a picture of an Amazon cart with a copy of the Indian Constitution reportedly sent for delivery to the Prime Minister's residence. Raising accusations for 'diving the country', the mockery by the Congress party came as the country celebrated its 71st Republic Day.
Keeping the payment method, 'pay on delivery', the Congress party's 'Constitution to PM' comes at the time when the country is facing outrage and nation-wide demonstrations against the policies of the BJP-led government, especially the controversial amended Citizenship Act (CAA) and proposed National Register of Citizens (NRC).
Dear PM,— Congress (@INCIndia) January 26, 2020
The Constitution is reaching you soon. When you get time off from dividing the country, please do read it.
Meanwhile, Union Minister Piyush Goyal, during the Raisina Dialogue 2020 held in New Delhi, had said, Amazon is not doing a favour to India by investing a billion dollars in the country. The comment came at the time when the country is reeling under economic crisis, with the IMF chief Gita Gopinath blaming India's GDP figures for the organisation's downward revision of the global economic growth.
However, while speaking at World Economic Forum (WEF) 2020, IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said growth slowdown in India appears to be temporary and that she expects the momentum to improve slowly.
