Minister says India has become a super power in Asia
Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri, Uttara Kannada district in-charge Minister, on Thursday said the democracy in India had been strengthened because of a strong Constitution the country got immediately after the Independence.
“In our neighbouring countries the democratically elected governments are toppled in military coups. But in Indian democracy remains free from any such threats,” he said after hoisting the National Flag at the police parade ground in Karwar to mark the 63rd Republic Day.
Mr. Kageri said India had emerged as a powerful country in the world and had become a super power in Asia. Despite the diversity in the country Indian democracy remained strong and became a model.
Remembering the architects of the Constitution, he said that more than 240 experts under the guidance of B. R. Ambedkar had worked to frame the constitution, which is one of the best in the world. He said that the concept of Panchayat Raj had strengthened the roots of democracy and the rural masses had contributed immensely in boosting democracy in the country by their participation in electoral politics.
The decentralisation of power gave strength to the local bodies which played vital role in India emerging as a strong nation Kageri said.
Inkanglo Jameer, Deputy Commissioner; K.T. Balakrishna, Superintendent of Police; and R.J. Joshi, zilla panchayat chief executive officer; were present.
