Aspirations of people should be incorporated for a constitution to be widely accepted and long-lasting, the Indian envoy here said today as a symposium was held here to commemorate the 125th Birth Anniversary of B R Ambedkar.
During the talk programme on 'The Indian Constitution', a host of speakers shed light on the important role played by Ambedkar in framing the constitution 67 years ago.
"Ambedkar is not only the constitution maker of India, he is also the source of great inspiration for the people all over the world for his ideas of inclusion and equality among people," said India's Ambassador to Nepal, Ranjit Rae.
"Aspirations of the people should be incorporated for a constitution to be widely accepted and long-lasting," he pointed out.
The talk programme was organised by the Indian embassy in association with BP Koirala India-Nepal Foundation (BPKF) and the Indian Cultural Centre (ICC).
Law and Justice Minister Ajay Shankar Nayak, said "Ambedkar is the symbol of democracy, justice, equality and liberty."
The Constitution crafted by Ambedkar is the key to national integrity of India, he said, adding "He is not only an icon of democracy, rule of law and social justice but also remain inspiration to all across the world."
The Constitution should be flexible and accommodative to new and changing aspirations of the people, said former justice of Supreme Court Girirsh Chandra Lal.
He underlined the need for effective implementation of the Constitution to become a successful document.
