Sloganeering in Parliament, debate on streets is today's problem: Sitasaran Sharma Bhopal:MMNN: Nov. 28, 2015 Country's first Constitution Day function organised at Journalism University
Speaker of Madhya Pradesh Assembly, Sitasaran Sharma has said that the objectives of the constitution and dignity of the democracy could be maintained. It's today's dilemma that sloganeering is done in the parliament and debates occur on the streets while the debates and discussions in the parliament should be the ideal practice of our democracy.
Shri Sharma was present as the Chief Guest at a function organised by Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Communication to mark the First Constitution Day. While expressing his views on the subject, 'Indian Constitution: Rights and Duties of the Citizens' said that when we could make changes in the religious system then constitutional changes are also quintessential and could not be kept away with. Change is the law of life. As far as question of constitution, while America has made 27 amendments to its constitution in last 200 years, we have made 100 amendments in our constitution after independence taking into account the situation and the social change. He said that the most important thing was those operating the constitution should be capable enough and should implement the provisions according to the motive of the constitution. He said that today, the country was moving on a way to take a direction and the role of the youth could be important in it. We should refrain from so-called 'socialism' in the name of socialism in the constitution. Only then we will be able to fulfill the dreams of Baba Saheb Ambedkar.
Shri Sharma said that the Indian Constitution is a special constitution in the world. Dr. Ambedkar had said that make however good constitution you want, it will not serve the purpose until those implementing them are good people. Several amendments have been made to the constitution according to the public needs and changing scenario. During the emergency, the words, 'Socialist' and 'Secular' added to the constitution which were not required as this provision was already there in the constitution. He said that the constitution states, “We the people of India” but today, the “We” has been occupied by 'NGO' which is not good. Today, most of the petitions are being filed by the NGOs and not the citizens. He exhorted the journalism students to responsibly discharge their duties as the 'Fourth pillar of the democracy' would have a strong role to play in the future.
The keynote speaker of the function, retired judge of High Court of Punjab and Haryana, Dr. Bharat Bhushan Parsoon said that the Indian Constitution has a connection with the soul of the Indians. The Constitution is associated with every part of the body and it is harboring the dreams of the Indians. It has been shaped according to the need of the citizens. To understand the Indian Constitution, we would have to understand the deep sense behind it. Justice Parsoon said that the Indian Constitution was adopted on November 26, 1949. This day came to be observed as Law Day on the initiative of Dr. Lakshmimal Singhvi. After the announcement of the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, it was decided to observe this day also as Constitution Day.
He explained that Indianism has an integral connection with Indian Constitution. The architects of the Constitution have mentioned us as “We the people of India” in the proposal of the constitution. The Constitution outlines the duties of the citizens and also gives them the right to perform those duties. It is the constitution that provides opportunity to the citizen even in the lowest strata of the country to hold the highest position in the country. English people had a notion that Indian cannot prepare their own constitution and even if they prepare it, they cannot run it.
The architects of our constitution and every citizen of the nation have proved this claim of Britishers as wrong. It is often said that we have prepared the constitution borrowing provisions from various countries while the architect of the constitution, Dr. Ambedkar had said that we did not steal any provision from any constitution but we have adopted them after modifying them according to the Indian conditions. The unique aspect of our constitution is its flexibility. Very less amendments have been made in the American constitution while in our country 100 amendments have been made so far. The spirit behind this is that we make amendments in the constitution according the change in condition in the interest of the citizens. Our constitution also provides provisions for giving protection to the weaker sections and women which is another specialty of our constitution.
Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Brij Kishore Kuthiala, who was presiding over the function, in his address, said that the constitution provides the citizens to live freely and the amendments are also made in the constitution according to the public will. Our country followed a law when we did not have a written constitution and during that age, following the law of nature was considered as the law. There could be several loopholes in the constitution but it is still the highest thing. Only after working according to the provisions of the constitution that India will lead the world in the days to come.
Among the others present no the occasion were Rector of the University, Shri Lajpat Ahuja, Registrar Dr. Sachchidanand Joshi, senior journalists, Shri Sarvdaman Pathak, Shivharsh Suhalka, GK Chhibbar, Sarman Nagele, Mahendra Gagan, Suresh Gupta, Shakir Noor, Dr. Ramji Tripathy, Saket Dubey and teachers, officers, employees, students and the dignitaries from the city. The function was coordinated by Head of the Mass Communication Department, Shri Sanjay Dwivedi.
