Indians have lived all over the world since ancient times. This should make us proud of India. The idea of Bharat should be admired. Since then we have followed democracy. It is from Bharat that the concept of democracy was created. Since the Vedic period of India, there were two types of systems namely ‘Janapatam’ and ‘Rajyam’. It was from this that organizations such as Gram Panchayats emerged. Gram Panchayats helped to save our culture from foreign invasions.
This is why our culture and traditions are still preserved. Thus, democracy in multi-system India started around B.C. Now there is evidence that it has existed since 5000 years ago. Similarly ‘vedic literature’ talks about the existence of universe. The ‘Upanishads’ emphasize the fundamental unity of all beings. It is said that ‘Bhagavad Gita’ teaches knowledge and virtue.
It is strongly condemned that the Union BJP government has issued a notification through the UGC to hide the Constitution Day on November 26 and hold seminars on Bharat, Bhagavad Gita, Vedic literature, Upanishads and ancient panchayat systems in colleges. , democracy, republican system, freedom, equality, fraternity, individual dignity, unity and integrity of the country, all these activities of the Union BJP government have been done in the last eight years. We will take a pledge on Constitution Day to defeat the efforts of the Hindutva Sanatana forces who are trying to subvert the Constitution,” he said.
