The welfare state philosophy and its inculcation in the constitution of India reflect Gandhi's idea of India, said Sikri. He also added that both Gandhi and Mandela fought against the oppression of establishment and both were a lawyer by profession. Adding to his idea, Sikri said that both the veterans ultimately fought against inequality and injustice.

Talking about "How Gandhi's ideas have a deep impact on the Indian constitution", Sikri has quoted the preamble of the constitution 'We the People' and said it is from the people and by the people, that is Gandhi's idea of Swaraj.
