About the Event
Since its adoption in 1950 to the present-day of 2020, there have been several situations and instances where the Indian Constitution has been either questioned or debated upon. Be it the AK Gopalan case of 1950, the Elections case of ’75, the Best Bakery case of ’03 relating to the Gujarat riots or the very recent judgement on abolition of Article 370 a lot of people have expressed a lot of their views. They have exercised their rights and our Judiciary has responded positively wherever it deemed fit.
In these times of ever-changing political scenarios and new laws being introduced at very short intervals, the topic of why our Constitution matters and what all rights and responsibilities it provides us is very important for the people to know.
