Itanagar, Nov 25: Arunachal Pradesh Governor, Brig. (Dr.) B.D. Mishra (Retd.) on Monday extended his warm greetings to all the citizens of the State on the occasion of the Constitution Day.
In his message, Mishra expressed his hope that the occasion will further strengthen the resolve of the people to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution.
“The Constitution of India, one of the most exhaustive written Constitutions in the world, was enacted, adopted and given to the people of India on November 26, 1949. It came into force on January 26, 1950. Securing of Justice, Liberty and Equality, and promotion of Fraternity are the unique features of our Constitution,” he said.
Reminding the people that this year, India is celebrating the 70th anniversary of the adoption of its Constitution, Mishra exhorted all to acknowledge with gratitude, the contributions of our great Freedom Fighters, particularly Dr. Rajendra Prasad, the President of the Constituent Assembly, who later became the First President of India and Dr. Bhim Rao Ambedkar, the head of the Drafting Committee, who later became the First Minister for Law and Justice of India, in writing the Constitution.
Mishra appealed to all my fellow citizens of Arunachal Pradesh to uphold the sanctity of the Indian Constitution particularly the FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES as enshrined in it. “Let us devote ourselves to the development, progress and prosperity of the society, State and Nation in the true spirit of our Constitution,” the Governor appealed.
