Constitution Day: CJI calls Constitution of India 'voice of marginalised

|

New Delhi, Nov 26: Chief Justice of India (CJI) Ranjan Gogoi on Monday said that the Indian "constitution is the voice of marginalised and prudence of majority".

"Our constitution is the voice of marginalised and prudence of majority. Its wisdom continues to guide us in moments of crisis. It's in our best interest to heed advice under the constitution. If we don't, our hubris will result in sharp descent into chaos," news agency ANI quoted him as saying during an event on Constitution Day.

"When it was brought into force, our Constitution was criticised. Sir Ivor Jennings termed it as far too large and rigid. Time has weakened criticism and it's a matter of pride that our constitution has lived with great vigour in last 7 decades," he added.

He said it is a befitting tribute to Bhim Rao Ambedkar to celebrate Constitution Day. The government had done the right thing to covert National Law Day to Constitution Day in 2015, Kovind said.

He said the Constitution is the scripture of modern India, which ensured justice--political, economic and social--for all.
