Constitution Day 2022

Constitution Day/’Samvidhan Divas’ is celebrated on November 26. Constitution Day is celebrated to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India. On this day, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted the Constitution of India. The constitution came into effect on 26th January 1950.

Celebrating constitution day started not long ago and was previously known as ‘law day’. Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the year 2015, while laying the foundation stone for the statue of Dr.B.R. Ambedkar also known as the “Father of the Constitution” declared November 26 as constitution day. The day was celebrated to create awareness about and honor the Indian Constitution and its architects.

At the 72nd Constitution Day event in the presence of justices and jurists, Modi said: “The government and judiciary are twins as they are born out of the same Constitution. As the nation looks towards the 100 years of Independence in the next 25 years, the government and judiciary must strive with common goals and common mind to meet the aspirations of the people through collective responsibility while keeping with the separation of powers.”

“No country exists today as a manifest colony of another country, but this does not mean the colonial mindset has ended…An attempt is being made today by the developed world to block the progress of developing countries and the environment is being hijacked for this purpose,” said PM Modi.

“The executive and the legislature must work in conjunction with the judiciary to ensure complete justice as envisaged under the Constitution,” justice Ramana said.

At the same time, he added: “The Laxman Rekha drawn by the Constitution is sacrosanct. There are times when courts are compelled to pay attention to unresolved grievances, in the interest of justice. The intention behind such limited judicial interventions is to nudge the executive, and not to usurp its role…. Attempts to project such interventions as the targeting of one institution by another are totally misplaced.”
