Constitution Day 2022: Addressing the Constitution Day event at Supreme Court in the presence of Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud and other judges, PM Modi said that the future of India's Constitution and institutions rests on the shoulders of the youth. Modi said there were 15 women members in the Constituent Assembly with one of them being Dakshaayini Velayudhan -- a woman who had come out of a deprived society. Modi said that she had made important interventions on many topics related to Dalits and labourers.

Durgabai Deshmukh, Hansa Mehta, Rajkumari Amrit Kaur, and many other women members had also contributed significantly on topics related to women. "Their contribution is rarely discussed," he underlined. He said there is another feature of the Constitution which has become even more relevant in today's times. The Constitution makers gave us a document which is open, futuristic and known for its modern vision, which makes it youth-centric, the prime minister said.

He said that the youth power is making its mark in every aspect of India's development be it sports or startups, information technology or digital payments. In order to increase the understanding of the constitution among youth, it is necessary that they become a part of debates and discussions on constitutional subjects, he noted. This, Modi said, will further increase their interest in the constitution. This will create a vision among the youth to understand topics such as equality and empowerment.
