Justice Markandey Katju writes: November 26 is India’s Constitution Day, and on Sunday, it was celebrated by the Supreme Court at a function at which the President of India, Draupadi Murmu was the chief guest, and where several dignitaries were present. The speakers waxed eloquent about the greatness of the Indian Constitution, what it has done for the Indian people, etc. The truth is different.
Justice Markandey Katju writes: A long time has passed since 1950 when the Indian Constitution was made, and it has now become necessary to frame and promulgate a new Constitution in view of the changed circumstances. Hence, this new Constitution has been drafted by the best legal minds of India, and is being submitted today, 15th August 2023 Independence Day, to the people of India for their approval.
