Constitution Day 2022: The country is celebrating its Constitution Day with great pride today (26 November). Constitution Day is celebrated every year on 26 November. On this day in 1949, the Constituent Assembly adopted the Indian Constitution. It took more than 2 years to make it. The constitution was implemented on 26 January 1950, since then we celebrate 26 January continuously as Republic Day. The date of 26 November was earlier celebrated as Law Day.
On Constitution Day, the Chief Justice of the country DY Chandrachud talked about bringing the weak, the downtrodden and the backward on an equal footing. He said that the Constitution of India tells the story of human struggle and upliftment, not just of law. He said that it is the constitution that has given respect to the backward and Dalits standing on the margins of the society. He said that during the British rule and before that, there used to be violations of citizens in the courts as well, but the constitution has banned it.
