    President Ram Nath Kovind addresses nation on the occasion of Constitution day

    President Ram Nath Kovind on Thursday addressed the nation on the ocassion of Constitution day. Here are the highlights from his address:

    • I believe we are blessed in having our founding document drafted by the great visionary leaders of our freedom movement. They were conscious of the fact that they were writing the collective future of the nation only on behalf of the people at large.
    • Not only is democracy at the heart of the Constitution, the Constituent Assembly itself was formed in a democratic manner. It had popular representation from across the country, and included some path-breaking women among its members too.
    • People also took great interest in the lively debates of the Constituent Assembly. Over 53,000 citizens sat in the visitors’ gallery over a period close to three years and watched the debates, according to the records.
    • Thus, what we have before us is – if I may say so – a document truly of the people, by the people and for the people.
    • To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln I can say with conviction that this document, a creation of Indian genius and ingenuity, too shall not perish from earth, as citizens continue to repose faith in it.
    • Our Constitution is said to be the lengthiest document of its kind. But then, as the President of the Constituent Assembly, Rajen Babu, rightly observed, its bulk is not an issue if its provisions are well thought out.
    • The Preamble has rightly been seen as the heart of the Constitution, and at its core are certain values. They are justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. This is the moral compass of our journey together to a glorious future.
    • The Preamble speaks of the resolve to secure for all its citizens social, economic and political justice. I reiterate that the notion of justice itself implies access to justice. In other words, justice can be secured only to the extent that it can be accessed.
    • In that regard, I have spoken before of my passion for pro-bono service. I am glad that I had the opportunity to provide free counsel to the needy when I was a practising advocate.
    • Improving access to justice for all is, of course, a work in progress. It is bound to be by its very nature. The hurdles in the way are many, the cost being the topmost among them.
    • I am pleased that the higher judiciary has started making available its judgments in more and more regional languages. This is surely the best way to keep more and more citizens in the loop, and thus bringing the institution of judiciary closer to the citizenry at large.
    • I am happy to see that the Supreme Court has continued to function and dispense justice amid the pandemic, using technological solutions like video-conferencing and e-filing.
    • I commend the bar, the bench and the officials for not letting the coronavirus come in the way of fulfilling the duty of securing justice for all.
    • Let us introspect how we can better live up to the ideals of the Founding Fathers, as enshrined in the Constitution in general and the Preamble in particular.
    • The Supreme Court of India has earned a reputation for its superior standards and lofty ideals. Landmark judgments passed by this Court have strengthened the legal and constitutional framework of our country.

    PM Modi LIVE: Inauguration of RE-Invest 2020 via video conferencing

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday participated in inauguration of 3rd Global Renewable Energy Investment Meeting and Expo (Re-Invest). Here are the highlights from his address:

    • In the earlier editions, we spoke about our plans for a journey from megawatts to gigawatts in renewable energy. We also spoke about  “One Sun, One World One Grid” to leverage solar energy. In a short time, many of these plans are becoming a reality.
    • In the last 6 years, India is travelling on an unparalleled journey. We are expanding our generation capacity and network to ensure every citizen of India has access to electricity to unlock his full potential.
    • Today, India’s renewable power capacity is the 4th largest in the world. It is growing at the fastest speed among all major countries. The renewable energy capacity in India is currently 136 Giga Watts, which is about 36% of our total capacity.
    • You would be happy to know that our annual renewable energy capacity addition has been exceeding that of coal based thermal power since 2017. In the last 6 years, we increased our installed renewable energy capacity by two and half times.
    • Even when it was not affordable, we invested in renewable  energy. Now our investment and scale is bringing costs down. We are showing to the world that sound environmental policies can also be sound economics.
    • When I talk about energy efficiency, we have not limited this mission only to one ministry or department. We have ensured that it becomes a target for the entire government. All our policies have a consideration of achieving energy efficiency.
    • After the success of PLI in electronics manufacturing, we have decided to give similar incentives to high efficiency solar modules. Ensuring “Ease of doing business” is our utmost priority. We have established dedicated Project Development Cells  to facilitate investors.
    • There are huge renewable energy deployment plans for the next decade. These are likely to generate business prospects of the order of around 20 billion dollars per year. I invite investors, developers and businesses to join India’s renewable energy journey.
