Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday said that India had strengthened and empowered its democracy in the last 70 years. He was addressing a joint sitting of both Houses of Parliament to mark the 70th anniversary of adopting the Constitution.
Addressing members of both Houses of Parliament in the Central Hall of Parliament House, he said that while November 26 is a happy occasion as India celebrates Constitution Day, it also reminds of the Mumbai terror attacks that took place on this day in 2008. “I pay tributes to those killed in the Mumbai terror attacks,” he said.
He said that the two mantras of the Indian Constitution are ‘dignity for Indians’ and ‘unity for India’.
