PWD and District in-charge Minister H C Mahadevappa, who unfurled the national flag at the Torch Light Parade Grounds in Bannimantap, spoke about the Indian Constitution. He said, Dr B R Ambedkar played an important role in drafting the Constitution and thus Indian Constitutional Supremacy, Parliamentary Supremacy, Judicial Supremacy, are its hallmarks.

"We have failed to implement a few recommendations such as addressing the glaring inequalities, need for strong opposition, equality in law and administration, observance of Constitutional morality, no tyranny of the majority over the minority, moral order in the society and strong presence of public conscience mentioned in the Constitution," Mahadevappa said.

Even after 68 years of Republic, atrocities against deprived classes, women, Dalits and minorities; and intolerance exists, he lamented.
