Commenting on the situation in Karnataka, Congress President Rahul Gandhi said the Constitution is under attack.

In a hearing at the odd hour of 2 am, a three-judge Supreme Court bench heard a petition filed by the Congress and JD(S). The two parties disputed the Karnataka Governor's decision to invite the BJP and BS Yeddyurappa to form the government in the southern state.

The SC refused to stay Yeddyurappa's oath-taking ceremony, which took place in the morning on Thursday.

Rahul Gandhi made a remark on the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). The organisation is trying to establish its presence in all institutions by filling them with its own people, the Congress president said.

Gandhi also said that BJP MPs and Supreme Court (SC) judges are fearful and cannot utter a word in front of Narendra Modi.

He also spoke about the freedom of autonomous institutions.

"All autonomous bodies like court, media,etc. are the voice of the nation, but that is being controlled," Gandhi said.

Gandhi also attacked BJP President Amit Shah.

"For the first time ever a murderer accused is a president of a national political party," Gandhi added.
