Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the identity of India as the mother of democracy needs to be further strengthened.

While addressing the gathering in the Supreme Court on Constitution Day, he said that we should talk more about the contribution of the women members of the constituent assembly.

The Prime Minister expressed happiness as India is strengthening the ideals of the constitution and pro-people policies are empowering the poor and women of the country.  

He informed that laws are being made easier and accessible for the common citizens and the Judiciary is taking many steps to ensure timely justice.

Modi recalled that in 1949 on this day, independent India laid the foundation of a new future for itself. 

The Prime Minister also noted the importance of the Constitution Day in the year of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsava.

The Prime Minister highlighted the contributions of countless individuals from the legislature, judiciary and executive in the last 70 decades of the journey of development and expansion of the Indian constitution and thanked them on behalf of the entire nation on this special occasion.

Remembering the dark day in the history of India when the country was celebrating the momentous occasion of Consitution day, the Prime Minister recalled that on November 26, India faced the biggest terrorist attack in its history by the enemies of humanity. 

Modi paid his tributes to the ones who lost their lives in the dastardly Mumbai terror attacks.
