A 16-page booklet that details a new Constitution for India is being shared using social media platforms and instant-messaging apps like WhatsApp, with a claim that this booklet was published by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
We also came across a Twitter user who has posted screenshots of the PDF.

NewsMobile fact-checked the above posts and found it to be FAKE.
Following the allegation of issuing a booklet of ‘New Constitution’, Narender Kumar, Akhil Bhartiya Sah Prachar Pramukh, RSS, called out this document to be ‘fake’ and tweeted, “Seeing their efforts to malign RSS are not working, anti-social elements have adopted a new technique. They are circulating a 16-page booklet with a claim that RSS chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat is behind it. This claim is absolutely false. The RSS chief has not published any such booklet.”
