The Arunachal Chief Minister – Pema Khandu, urged the citizens to fulfil their constitutionally-specified essential duties rather than concentrating on their fundamental rights.

Speaking at the Constitution Day celebration, Khandu observed that citizens never discussed their fundamental duties but always speak about their fundamental rights.

“The youths, also referred as the backbone of the society, should be educated on fundamental obligations, that will aid in the advancement of the community,” the chief minister continued.

He assured the people that state administration will continue to uphold the democratic principles enshrined in the Constitution.

“In fact, democratic values are core to our tribal culture and we will strengthen it through our commitment,” the chief minister added.

He said that in order to accomplish Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of a developed India, everyone must cooperate within the bounds of the Constitution.

“Regardless of political affiliation, caste, creed, or religion, this should be everyone’s top priority, and everyone must collaborate to attain the goal,” Khandu said.

Stating that opposition plays an important role in a healthy democracy, the chief minister lauded the opposition in the state assembly for giving constructive suggestion to the government.

Khandu said the Constitution of India is of a different genre, derived from best portions of constitutions of various countries and suitably adapted to Indian conditions.

“We must remember that the Constitution was neither typeset nor printed; rather it was handwritten and calligraphic in both Hindi and English languages. We can just imagine the amount of hardwork put in by Dr B R Ambedkar and his team of 17 member committee,” he said.

Khandu said the democratic process in India started since time immemorial which was also prevalent among the tribal communities of the state, even before Independence.

Lamenting over the lack of historical information of the past in the country’s education system, Khandu said that schools and college curriculum never taught the past history of the country and northeast to the students, which were lost in passage of time.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying his best to recollect the glorious history of the country through several initiatives under the aegis of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav where unsung heroes of independence will be recognized and honoured. In Arunachal, the state government has already constituted a committee on unsung heroes to record their heroics so that the future generations are inspired,” he said.
