New Delhi: Mallikarjun Kharge who took charge as Congress President on Wednesday soon took aim at the BJP and RSS, saying that the saffron party and the RSS are "attempting to replace the Baba Saheb's Constitution with Sangh Constitution"

In his maiden speech, he said, "there is attempt the replace Baba Saheb's Constitution with Sangh Constitution but Congress will not let it happen. "

He took a dig at the much-touted the New India that the BJP leadership harps on and said that it is an India without jobs, where poverty is prevalent and farmers are being crushed under wheels. The government's focus is on stripping the country of an opposition, but the Congress will fight the government for the people.

He said as per the Udaipur declaration [of the Congress], the party posts will be filled and there will be social advisory Committee with particular attention to Schedules Caste, Scheduled Tribes and Other Backward Classes.

Kharge recalled his initial days with the party when he started his career as block Congress committee worker in 1969 and now he is the party President.

He thanked party veteran Sonia Gandhi for her efforts to strengthen the Congress as President.
