the preamble, the concept of federation, fundamental duties and directive principles.

“It has provisions to cope up with the national imperatives and the march of time,” the governor said, adding in the Indian federation system, the nation is cemented and attachment is unalterable.

The governor, while highlighting about the ‘fundamental duties’ of the Constitution said that if the people of India want to stay strong, sovereign and developed, they must abide by the Constitution and respect its ideals and institutions, the national flag and the national anthem.
