In his remarks on Constitution Day, Prime Minister Modi stated that the spirit of the Constitution represents the spirit of the nation

According to the Prime Minister, the entire world is looking at India with great hope because of its rapid development, booming economy, and solid international image. During the Supreme Court’s Constitution Day celebrations on Saturday, he stated that the country, despite initial concerns about its stability, is advancing with full force and is taking pride in its diversity.

PM Modi attributed this success to the Constitution. As he explained, the first three words of the Preamble, ‘We the People,’ are a call, a trust, and an oath. India has been the mother of democracy worldwide for centuries because of this spirit of the Constitution.”

According to him, the Constitution embodies the nation’s cultural and moral sentiments in modern times. During his Independence Day speech, the Prime Minister stressed the importance of duties, calling it the manifestation of the Constitution’s spirit.

“Azadi Ka Amrit Kaal is a time for country-wide service. Our responsibilities, whether they pertain to people or institutions, are our priority,” PM Modi declared and urged further strengthening India’s identity as a mother of democracy.

During his address, Union Law Minister Kiren Rijiju stated that the government is doing everything it can to strengthen the Indian judicial system under the visionary leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. According to him, he is fortunate to have a close and cordial relationship with the Indian judiciary and jointly identify issues that need to be addressed.

AT THE EVENT, D Y Chandrachud, Chief Justice of India, said that all judges, from the district courts to the Supreme Court, must reflect upon the constitutional vision of ensuring justice, equality, and liberty. Our actions and decisions should be examined critically, and our prejudices and preconceptions should be questioned. Our role as judges will be compromised until we are open to multiple perspectives of individuals with diverse lived experiences,” he said, adding that a democratic institution will survive and prosper with time.

According to the Chief Justice, colonial and pre-colonial courts demonstrated reluctance, disinclination, and inaction when protecting citizens’ rights; however, the culture of reluctance was replaced by a call for a dedicated judiciary to protect citizens’ rights with the advent of constitutional democracy.

It was noted by CJI Chandrachud that “the story of the Indian Constitution goes beyond legal texts and legal interpretations. The story is one of human struggle and sacrifice. In a nutshell, it is a story about undoing injustices against marginalised sections of society. On Indian soil, the marginalised communities planted seeds of liberty, equality, and fraternity. Indian indigenous communities were the first to resist colonial power.”

He said those in power historically made the Constitution, whereas oppressed people changed the power hegemony and chose to govern themselves.

It is imperative that the government cease overloading the courts with endless statutory appeals in conjunction with a continuous and massive flow of cases from the high courts, according to Attorney General R Venkataramani. Despite the fact that any court is good enough for one in trouble, the Supreme Court must cease its conversion into a minor cause court.
