As per NITI Aayog’s Multi Dimensional Poverty Index, Kerala has the lowest percentage of population who are poor, 0.71%.pinarayi vijayan – CM, Kerala
Our unwavering commitment towards social welfare is reflected in this achievement, which will be a huge boost to our efforts to eradciate extreme poverty.
Sukhbir Singh Badal – President, Akali Dal:
Senior leaders of Akali Dal would court arrest in front of CM Charanjit Channi’s residence at noon tomorrow, followed by a ‘jail bharo’ andolan at the district level against the Congress conspiracy to implicate former minister BS Majithia in a false drugs case, I dare CM Channi to order probe in this case under a sitting HC judge.
He ordered DGP to register false case against Mr. Majithia after meeting Navjot Singh Sidhu & HM Sukhjinder Singh just to divert attention from their govt’s failures & carry out political vendetta against Akalis.
The victory of farmers protest through democratic means is a unique example for the world. GoI must ensure MSP by law & withdraw all cases registered against farmers.
Had they taken heed of SAD’s demands earlier, we could have saved 800 lives averting heartbreaking tragedies.
Prime Minister’s Office:
Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed the Constitution Day Celebrations organized by the Supreme Court here today. Chief Justice of India Shri Justice NV Ramana, Union Minister Shri Kiren Rijuju, Senior Supreme Court and High Court Justices, Attorney General of India Shri K K Venugopal and President of Supreme Court Bar Association Shri Vikas Singh were among those present on the occasion.
Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said in the morning he was amidst the colleagues from the legislature and the executive. And now he was among all the learned members of the judiciary. “We all may have different roles, different responsibilities, different ways of working, but the source of our faith, inspiration and energy is the same – our Constitution”, the Prime Minister emphasized.
The Prime Minister said that our constitution makers gave us the constitution cherishing the great tradition of India of thousands of years and in the light of the dreams of the people who lived and died for freedom.
The Prime Minister stressed that even after so many years of independence, a large chunk of the citizens were condemned to suffer exclusion in the areas of basic needs like drinking water, toilets, electricity etc. Working to make their life easier is the best tribute to the constitution. He expressed satisfaction that a massive campaign to turn this exclusion into conclusion is underway in the country.
During the Corona period, the Prime Minister said, free food grains were provided to more than 80 crore people for the last several months. The government is giving free food grains to the poor by spending more than Rs 2 lakh 60 thousand crore on PM Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana. He added that this scheme was extended yesterday till March next year. He said when the needs and concerns of the poor, women, transgenders, street vendors, divyangs and other segments get addressed, they get included in the process of nation-building and their faith in the constitution gets strengthened.
The Prime Minister remarked that Sabka Saath-Sabka Vikas, Sabka Vishwas-Sabka Prayas, is the most powerful manifestation of the spirit of the Constitution. Government dedicated to the Constitution, does not discriminate in development and we have done this. Today the poorest of the poor are getting the same access to quality infrastructure, which was once limited to the resourceful people. Today, the country has as much focus on the development of Ladakh, Andaman and North East as it is on metro cities like Delhi and Mumbai, he said.
Referring to recently released results of National Family Health Survey, the Prime Minister said that with regard to gender equality, now the number of daughters is increasing in comparison to men. More opportunities for hospital delivery are becoming available to pregnant women. Due to this the maternal mortality rate, infant mortality rate are decreasing.
The Prime Minister said today there is no country in the whole world that apparently exists as a colony of another country. But this does not mean that the colonial mindset too is over. “We are seeing that this mindset is giving rise to many distortions. The most obvious example of this is seen in the obstacles faced by us in the development journey of developing countries. Efforts are being made to close the same means, the same path, for the developing countries, by the means by which the developed world has reached today’s position”,he said. The Prime Minister noted that India is the only country in the process of achieving the goals of the Paris Agreement ahead of time. And yet, in the name of environment, various pressures are created on India. All this is the result of a colonial mentality. He said “unfortunately due to such a mentality, obstacles are put in the development of our own country. Sometimes in the name of freedom of expression and sometimes with the help of something else”, he emphasized. He added that this colonial mindset is a big obstacle in further strengthening the determination that was created in the freedom movement. “We have to remove it. And for this, our biggest strength, our biggest inspiration, is our Constitution”, he said.
The Prime Minister remarked that both the government and the judiciary are born out of the womb of the Constitution. Hence, both are twins. These two have come into existence only because of the constitution. So, from a broader point of view, the two complement each other even while being different. He underlined the importance of the concept of separation of power and said that, in the Amrit Kaal, there is need to show collective resolve within the spirit of the Constitution as the common man deserves more than what he has currently. “On the strong foundation of separation of power, we have to pave the path of collective responsibility, create a roadmap, determine goals and take the country to its destination”, He added.

He was inspired by Tribhuvandas Patel and in turn became an icon.
The 1976 film Manthan captures the Amul story beautifully.

President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the 71st Constitution Day of India celebrations at the Central Hall of the Parliament.
PM Modi’s address in Central Hall of Parliament on Constitution Day :
Today is the day to pay our tribute to the main architects of the Indian Constitution like Dr. Rajendra Prasad & Dr. BR Ambedkar.
While we are commemorating ‘Samvidhan Divas’ today, we must not forget the brave hearts who countered the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks & the ones who lost their lives.
We also bow to all those who made sacrifices in the freedom movement.
Our duty as citizens is to protect the rich values that the Indian Constitution has charted for us & introspect its significance in our lives every year.
We should celebrate Samvidhan Divas every year, to inspire our coming generations and answer their questions.
Our Constitution is not just a collection of many clauses, our Constitution is the great tradition of millennia.
We must value the worth of Indian Constitution in building ‘Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat’ & the immense contribution of Dr. BR Ambedkar has made in directing Indian policymakers towards unity & diversity.
Indian Constitution empowers us towards growth & enriches us with it’s core values of integrity and justice.
As we are celebrating 75 years of India’s freedom, we should take inspiration from our Constitution that guides us in protecting the rights of our citizens like respecting women, practice equality, discourage corruption & become a better citizen
Amit Malviya – National In-charge of BJP’s IT Dept.:
14 parties including Congress, Left, TMC, RJD, SS, NCP, SP, IUML and the DMK to boycott ‘Constitution Day’ celebrations in Central Hall.
Congress, which created a big hue and cry during Nehru’s birth anniversary program, is leading the boycott.
This is an insult to Dr Ambedkar.
Best wishes to our citizens on Constitution Day.PM NARENDRA MODI
