Dharamsala (March 30): AB Rajbansh, a resident of village Ansoli near Kangra, yesterday offered to hand over master copy of the ‘smallest’ hand-written constitution of United Kingdom to the Prime Minister of Britain David Cameron if the government of UK returns Kohinoor diamond to India.
In a letter addressed to Prime Minister David Cameron, Rajbansh said, “I am in possession of the smallest hand-written master copy of the constitution of UK with dimensions 2 Х 1.5 cms each page, thickness including binding 0.6cm, total pages 111, and I can hand over this master copy to Your Excellency, provided the Kohinoor diamond is duly returned to India.”
Rajbansh, an unemployed diploma engineer, who had written this smallest UK constitution and whose name figured in the Limca Book of Records (edition 2005), said in his letter that he wanted to sell off this creation through international auction. He said that he had changed his mind under the present prevailing circumstances and offered that the UK government accepts his creation as a valued gift.
