Governor of Gujarat Mr. Acharya Devvrat and Chief Minister Mr. Vijay Rupani marked their presence at Gujarat High Court as a part of the celebrations of the Constitution Day.
During the address, Mr. Devvrat said, “The aspect of public welfare is the essence of Indian Constitution. It truly embodies the spirit of unity and solidarity which makes it one of the best in the world. These aspects are also a part of the Indian traditions and culture.”
The constitution also reflects the ideals mentioned in the Vedas and Puranas. The spirit of nationalism is articulated through our constitution. As citizens of India, the people must utilise their democratic rights in a just manner.
Chief Minister Mr. Vijay Rupani said, “The constitution of India has given the citizens a voice. A country without constitution is like a body without soul.” Mr. Rupani also recollected his personal experiences which enabled him to understand the aspect of Liberty and Freedom.
