Paragraph on Constitution!
Constitution of any country is a sacred document, as it lays down the ground rules, which regulate the relations between the government and the people, between the different organs of the government and defines the rights and duties of the citizens.
The political development of India as an independent and sovereign republic has its historical roots in the period of British rule in India.
The British from the beginning followed a repressive colonial policy in India.
Economic exploitation first sowed the seeds of nationalistic awakening in Indians. This feeling was slowly, but surely organised into a strong movement for political freedom from alien rule. The constitutional developments are inevitably linked with our nationalist movement.
The parliamentary government and legislative and other democratic institutions in their modem form had an organic growth on the Indian soil. Essentially, we owe them to India’s British connection for some two centuries and to the relentless struggle waged by her people for establishment of reprehensive institutions and freedom from foreign rule.
However, the institutions as we know them today were gradually introduced by the British Government through halting doses by constitutional reforms, grudgingly granted under the various acts of British Parliament.
