BENGALURU: As India celebrated its 71st Republic Day recently, a school teacher from Kerala is on a mission to spread constitutional literacy across the country.
Binu P.G., a teacher who undertakes trips for academic purposes, is keen to see academic institutions come up with Constitution Clubs.
“Constitutional literacy is the need of the hour. I tried forwarding the suggestion to start constitution clubs in all schools and colleges. Hope the government of India will fulfil our dream and soon all academic institutions will have such clubs,” he said.
Binu believes that Constitutional literacy will bring honesty not only among legislators but also citizens. “Our Constitution is like a chain of pearls. Its light should reach every nook and corner of India. We successfully completed 70 years of journey of democracy. Indian Parliament is the supreme law-making body of the country. We should realise the soul of Indian Constitution, especially lawmakers. Then we can expect sincere and honest lawmaking, and it will touch every Indian citizen’s heart,” he added....
