NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the Constitution of India is known for its progressive views. He was speaking at the Constitution Day celebrations at the Supreme Court.

"Our country as the "mother of democracy", is strengthening our constitutional beliefs. With the strength of Pro-People Policies, we are empowering the poor, marginalised and women with simplified laws. The eyes of the entire world are on India. Rapid development, rapid economic growth... the world is applauding India," said PM Modi while addressing the event.

The Prime Minister further said that our biggest strength is our Constitution. "We the people" in our constitution aren't just three words but is a belief."

"For timely justice, our judiciary is taking a lot of steps... including the e-initiatives that were launched today, ensuring ease of justice for all," PM Modi.

He said that everyone should enhance India's prestige before the world and bring its contribution before them.

"New opportunities are coming up before India. Crossing all hurdles, it's going ahead. A week from now, India will get the G20 presidency. It's big! As Team India, all of us should enhance India's prestige before the world and bring its contribution before them. It's our collective duty," he said.

Chief Justice DY Chandrachud said that it is time for the courts to reach out to the people.

"Courts during colonial times did not ensure social justice. Equality is the concept of our constitution. Instead of people coming to court for justice, courts should come to people," he said.
