He stressed on two points – the first one was to be a responsible citizen by following the law and protecting the Constitution. He also said that rights and duties are the two faces of the coin and when we enjoy these rights we are deemed to perform our duties without fail. The second point was that we need to honour the Constitution by respecting others’ rights. He appreciated the five pillars of our Constitution – Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic Republic and said that we were blessed to have them as citizens of India.
