PM invites people’s views on fundamental duties

New Delhi, Dec 27 (IANS) Stating that there has been little discussion over fundamental duties in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday invited people’s views on it by the Republic Day.

“There is a lot of discussion on fundamental rights and there should be. But there is very little discussion on fundamental duties. Our constitution gives importance to duties as well,” Modi said in his monthly radio address ‘Mann Ki Baat’.

Only during the time of elections in the country, it is seen over hoardings and advertisements emphasising that voting is a fundamental duty, Modi said.

Before January 26, that would mark the 125th birth anniversary of Indian Constitution’s author B.R. Ambedkar, the prime minister asked various schools and colleges across the country to hold essay writing and poetry competitions on the topic “duties”.

He also asked the general public to express its views on duties to share them on ‘mygov.in’ portal, so that he could learn what people think.

Modi also said before the Republic Day, people should take on the task of cleaning up the statues of various personalities located in various cities, towns and villages of the country.

  1. Here is the cunning catch!

    Peoples right is government’s duty and governments right is peoples duty!

    MODI DOES NOT BOTHER TO DISCHARGE HIS DUTY TO THE PEOPLE!
    BUT, HE WANTS TO DEMAND DUTY FROM THE PEOPLE!
    THIS IS ONE WAY TRAFFIC. YOU HELP MODI, BUT MODI DOESN’T!!!

    IT IS LIKE RSS DISCIPLINE. YOU OBEY THE RSS, BUT RSS DOES NOT OBEY ANY ONE.
