  • He also said that the country will remember all the constitutional pillars laid by Ambedkar saying that ‘constitution is India’s sacred book.’
  • He recalled that Indians never stopped believing in the constitution and this is what binds all of us.
  • We should never forget Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings. He added that Gandhi taught us to perform our duties towards the nation. “If I am following traffic rules, that also means that I am doing my duty,” he said.
