PM Modi was addressing parliamentarians in Central Hall

The Constitution stands for the dignity and unity of India and Indians, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told parliament today on the occasion of Constitution Day. Saluting Dr Bhim Rao Ambedkar, who played a key role in the framing of the Constitution, the Prime Minister claimed that "probably" nobody would be happier at the state of affairs in the country than its first Law Minister. India has strengthened and empowered its democracy in the 70 years since the Constitution was adopted, he added.

"The two mantras of the Constitution are 'dignity for Indians' and ''unity for India'," Prime Minister Modi told MPs gathered in the Central Hall of Parliament, adding, "Had Babasaheb Ambedkar been alive today he would have probably been the happiest man".

PM Modi was speaking shortly after the Supreme Court ruled on the chaotic political situation in Maharashtra, where the BJP's Devendra Fadnavis was sworn in as Chief Minister after a secretive ceremony on Saturday. Approached by a furious Shiv Sena-Congress-NCP front, the top court today said Mr Fadnavis must prove his government's majority in a live-streamed floor test in the Assembly tomorrow.
