President Ram Nath Kovind has said that the biggest challenge before the public representatives and democratic institutions is to meet the expectations of the public. Inaugurating the 80th All India conference of the presiding officers at Kevadia in Gujarat, he said it is expected from the public representatives that they always remain honest towards the principals of democracy.
He said the Indian institutions are gaining more strength at a time when democratic institutions are being questioned around the world. Stating that Indian ancient books have mentions of democratic values, the President said our founding fathers gave a final form to these sentiments in the Constitution.
President Kovind expressed happiness that this conference is being held at the statue of unity- the world’s tallest statue of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.
Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu in his address said that harmonious coordination between Legislature, Executive and Judiciary is a Key to a Vibrant Democracy.
Lok Sabha Speaker and chairman of this conference Om Birla called upon all participating presiding officers to think about the constitutional responsibility on the constitution day. He also appealed the presiding officers to take oath for fulfilling the targets set by our great leaders.
The theme of this year’s conference is Harmonious Coordination of Legislative, Executive and Judiciary – Key to a Vibrant Democracy.
