26th November to be observed as Constitution Day to celebrate the Constitution & have greater awareness among the youth: PM

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today attended a book release function to commemorate Constitution Day, at Parliament House Annexe.

Two books: an updated version of the Constitution of India; and “Making of the Constitution” were released on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that 26 November is being celebrated as Constitution Day since 2015. He said that successive generations should be well acquainted with the Constitution, and recall it in the contemporary context.

The Prime Minister said that In India, when we recall the Constitution, we also recall Babasaheb Ambedkar. He said that we must be connected with the spirit of the Constitution, and look for a balance between rights and duties.

Noting the importance of Constitution Day, the Prime Minister said 26 January (our Republic Day) could not have been celebrated without 26 November.

The Prime Minister said that the common citizen has today become a soldier in the fight against corruption and black money. He encouraged people to use digital modes of money exchange to the extent possible, as this would increase transparency. He asserted that every person has a right to spend his or her money, and no one can take away anyone's money.
