Earlier in the day, the AAP government had to offer an official apology following goof up over its advertisement published in newspapers on the ocassion of first Constitution Day, being celebrated today, Nov 26.
The party's ad had printed the Preamble of the Constitution of India but the words 'secular' and 'socialist' were missing from it. The above mentioned words were not a part of the Preamble when it was first drafted. These two were inserted in the Preamble later on by amending the Constitution.
The party had earlier criticised the BJP-led Government at Centre for printing and publishing the older version of the Preamble and accused the union government of deliberately removing the two words from the Constitution.
