26/11 anniversary is also 60th anniversary of constitution’s adoption

New Delhi, Nov 26 (Inditop.com) The first anniversary of the horrific 26/11 Mumbai terror carnage was also the 60th anniversary of the adoption of the Indian constitution but sadly, this did not get the attention it deserved, a Rajya Sabha MP lamented Thursday.

“This morning, when we assembled, we paid tribute to the victims of the 26/11 attack. But we have forgotten that our constitution was adopted on 26th November 1949. Today is the 60th anniversary of that momentous event,” Bharatiya Janata Party member S.S. Ahluwalia said during zero hour.

“Sadly, there is no mention of this in the media. Parliament too has forgotten about it. There was not even a bouquet placed in the Central Hall where the constitution was adopted,” Ahluwalia added.

“In future, this anniversary should also be observed every year to keep alive the memory of that day among future generations,” Ahluwalia maintained.
