New Delhi, Nov 26: Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended Constitution Day Celebrations in Parliament today. The event was addressed by the President, Vice President, Prime Minister and Lok Sabha Speaker.

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said today is the day to pay homage to the far-sighted great personalities like Babasaheb Ambedkar, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Bapu and all those who made sacrifices during the freedom struggle.

The Prime Ministers bowed to the martyrs of 26/11 also. “Today, 26/11 is such a sad day for us, when the enemies of the country came inside the country and carried out the terrorist attack in Mumbai. The brave soldiers of the country sacrificed their lives while fighting the terrorists. Today I bow to their sacrifices”, the Prime Minister said.

Elaborating on the spirit behind celebrating the ‘Constitution Day’, the Prime Minister said it was during the 125th birth anniversary of Babasaheb Ambedkar.

“We all felt that what could be a greater auspicious occasion than the gift that Babasaheb Ambedkar had given to this country, we should always remember his contribution in the form of a memory book (Smrit Granth)”, said Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister also warned against the tendency of forgetting and glorifying convicted corrupt people. He said while giving an opportunity to reform we should refrain from glorifying such people in public life.

The Prime Minister said Mahatma Gandhi had tried to prepare the nation for the duties, even while fighting for the rights in the freedom movement.

“It would have been better if the duty had been emphasized after the country’s independence. In the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, it is necessary for us to move forward on the path of duty so that our rights are protected”, he concluded.
