Chief Minister Siddaramaiah of the Congress government says that Manusmriti considers 95% of the people of the country as slaves of 5% of the people.
Karnataka CM Siddaramaiah says that there is a need to be cautious of people who oppose the Constitution because these are the forces who want to destroy the Constitution and re-implement Manusmriti.
Siddaramaiah also said that implementing Manusmriti means that 95% of the population of this country will live as slaves. Democracy and the Constitution are the best shield against this system.
On Friday, September 15, a mass reading of the Preamble of the Constitution was held on International Democracy Day. This program took place at Bengaluru Vidhana Soudha. About 1.5 crore people including students participated in this event.

Siddaramaiah told the students to at least read the Preamble of the Constitution and not let any attempt by the opposition forces to destroy its principles succeed. If democracy survives we will survive. If the Constitution survives, democracy will survive. Therefore, it is the duty of every citizen of this country to protect democracy and the Constitution.
Reading the introduction is mandatory in government schools.
The Government of Karnataka has made reading the Preamble mandatory for all schools. Siddaramaiah said- We are implementing reading of the Preamble in all schools to make children aware of the essence of our Constitution.
Siddaramaiah said that one of the biggest objectives of the Constitution has not yet been achieved. He said, “As long as we fail to understand and live by the principles of the Constitution, it will be extremely difficult to develop a society based on equality in this country.”
