Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath unfurled the national flag at his official residence on 75th Republic Day.
Congratulating the people of the state, the CM said that after a long struggle for independence, India implemented its own Constitution in independent India.
“After celebrating Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav in 2022, this year we are celebrating the ‘Amrit Year of our Republic.’ For the last 74 years, the Constitution of India has stood the test of time by eliminating caste, class, sect, region, and all other barriers,” the CM said.
CM Yogi said that many other countries established as modern democracies in the world, which consider themselves to be the most progressive, had deprived women of voting rights on the basis of gender discrimination for a long time.
“He underscored the uniqueness of the Indian Constitution, emphasising that India ensured the absence of discrimination based on gender, caste, religion, or region. Every adult voter in the country holds the full right to exercise their voting rights,” as per a release from the Chief Minister’s office.
The Chief Minister said that on this day in 1950, after a long struggle for independence, India implemented its own constitution. It is the world’s largest constitution, filled with numerous achievements. He stressed that the Indian constitution not only grants rights but also emphasises citizens’ duties, adding, “If we honestly fulfil our duties, our country will become a ‘developed India’ in the next 25 years.”
He further asserted that we have to be proud of our country’s past and move towards a bright future by making the present beautiful and pleasant.
“Our Constitution is supreme for us. It urges us to ensure that every action is in the interest of the country,” Yogi added.
On this occasion, CM Yogi also paid tribute to the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, Constituent Assembly President Dr Rajendra Prasad and the architect of the Indian Constitution, Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar. He mentioned that these figures are inspirational for all of us.
CM Yogi, extending his greetings to the people of the state on social media, wrote, “Hearty congratulations and best wishes to the people of the state on the 75th Republic Day! This national festival not only remembers our immortal fighters but also provides us an opportunity to commit ourselves to the realisation of the concept of ‘Ek Bharat-Shrestha Bharat’. Let us all be determined to build a ‘capable, self-reliant India’! Jai Hind!”
