Constitutional Morality Imperative, Says President
Organs of state, constitutional functionaries, citizens must abide by it: Kovind

President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday quoted Dr. B.R. Ambedkar to say that all the three organs of the State, persons occupying constitutional posts, civil society members and citizens should abide by “constitutional morality”.

The President made the observation at a joint sitting of Parliament in the Central Hall of Parliament to mark Constitution Day on the 70th anniversary of the adoption of the statute.

The event was boycotted by a majority of the Opposition parties over the Maharashtra government formation issue, and they staged a protest in front of the Ambedkar statue in Parliament House.

The Bahujan Samaj Party, the Biju Janata Dal and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, however, attended the function.
