Our Constitution is “open, futuristic and known for its progressive views”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today during an event to mark the Constitution Day. “The words ‘We the people’ are not just three words, but the very essence of our Constitution and one that defines our democracy and makes us the mother of all democracies in the world,” PM Modi said.
Addressing the event in the Supreme Court, PM Modi said the entire world was looking at India which is witnessing rapid development and economic growth.
“Be it an individual or institutions, our duties are our first priority. The Amrit Kaal is the era of duties for us. This Azaadi ka Amritkaal is a time to take a pledge to work to take the nation forward at a greater pace and with the intent to make it a world leader. In a week’s time from now, India will assume the presidency of the G20,” he added.
