Students of the school also delivered speeches highlighting the importance and significance of the day.
It may be recalled that Dr. Rajendra Prasad, President of the Constituent Assembly, in his speech, before putting the motion to pass the Constitution, paid tributes to Mahatma Gandhi and said, ‘I shall only hope that all those whose good fortune it may be to work this Constitution in future, will remember that it was a unique victory which we achieved by unique method taught by the Father of the Nation, and it is up to us to preserve and protect the Independence that we have won and to make it really bear fruit for the man in the street.’
It was on November 19, 2015, when the Government of India through a gazette notification declared November 26 as the Constitution Day.
Earlier, this day was commemorated as National Law Day.
