New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday extended his wishes to the nation on the occasion of Constitution Day and shared on Twitter a part of B R Ambedkar’s speech in the Constituent Assembly in which he moved a motion for adoption of the draft Constitution.

“Best wishes to our citizens on Constitution Day,” Prime Minister Modi tweeted. Constitution Day is celebrated to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution by the Constituent Assembly in 1949.

On this “special day”, Modi also shared a part of Ambedkar’s speech in the Constituent Assembly on November 4, 1948 in which he moved a motion for adoption of the Draft Constitution as settled by the Drafting Committee.

In another tweet, Modi quoted India’s first president Rajendra Prasad’s words that no matter how beautiful, well-organised and strong any Constitution is made, if it is not run by the true, fearless, selfless servants of the country, then it cannot do anything.

“No matter how beautiful, well-organized and strong any constitution is made, if it is not run by the true, fearless, selfless servants of the country, then the constitution cannot do anything,” he said in a tweet in Hindi. This spirit of Rajendra Prasad is like a guiding light, the prime minister wrote.
