New Delhi: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday inaugurated a month-long nationwide Constitution Day Youth Club activities programme via a video conferencing.
The programme is being organised by National Cadets Corps (NCC).

The aim of the programme is to mobilise youth to spread awareness about the Indian Constitution amongst the people across the nation, the defence ministry said.

In his inaugural address the minister exhorted the youths to understand the spirit of the constitution and work sincerely to realize its ideals.

He said, “our Constitution was shaped after years of intense discussions and deliberations. The preamble of our constitution begins with ‘We’ and it thus, depends upon all of us how we take our country and our system forward.”

Mr Singh also added that “we need to make people aware of their rights as enshrined in the constitutionbut at the same time make them aware of their duties also as both rights and duties are linked to each other.”

He said through this campaign, people should be made aware that the Constitution guides their lives through its core values of discipline, unity in diversity, freedom, equality, sovereignty and social solidarity.

This is necessary to build a ‘New India’, he added.

Mr Singh further said, taking inspiration from great leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi, Swami Vivekananda, Dr. B. R. Ambedkar and Pandit DeenDayal Upadhyay, we should follow the ideals of the constitution with resolute firmness.

The month-long campaign will be undertaken by the youth organisations of the country i.e. National Cadet Corps(NCC), National Service Scheme (NSS), Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan (NYKS), The Bharat Scouts and Guides, Hindustan Scouts and Guides Association and Red Cross from November 18 to December 13.

A Nationwide blood donation camp will be organised by volunteer youth from November 22 to 24.
