Constitution Day celebrated across the country

@airnewss
President Ram Nath Kovind led the nation in community reading of the Preamble to the Constitution of India today, on the occasion of the Constitution Day. The President read the Preamble from Rashtrapati Bhavan which was live telecast by Doordarshan and joined by the people across the nation. It was also screened live at Kevadia, Gujarat, where all participants of the 80th All India Presiding Officers’ Conference read out the Preamble along with the President.

Constitution Day is being celebrated today across the country to mark the adopting of the Indian Constitution by the Constituent Assembly. The day is also known as National Law Day and commemorates the adoption of the Constitution in India. On 26th November in 1949, the Constituent Assembly of the country formally adopted the Constitution of India which came into force on 26th January 1950. Constitution Day was first celebrated in 2015, when NDA Government decided to mark the day as a tribute to Dr B R Ambedkar who played an important role in its framing as the Chairman of the Drafting Committee.
 
The constituent assembly took two years, eleven months and seventeen days to accomplish the stupendous task of drafting the historic document. The Constitution declares India a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic, assuring its citizens justice, equality and liberty and endeavours to promote fraternity. It is also the longest written constitution of any sovereign country in the world.
