Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member of Parliament KJ Alphons, who sought to amend the Preamble to the Constitution, was on February 4 absent in Rajya Sabha when his turn to introduce the Private Member’s Bill came.

Deputy speaker Harivansh Narayan Singh, during the debate on Private Member’s Bill during the ongoing Budget Session of Parliament, called Alphons to move the motion to introduce the Bill that seeks to replace the word “socialist” with “equitable” in the Preamble to the Constitution, among other changes. But Singh had to move to the next item on the agenda because Alphons was not present in the House.
