Chief Justice Gita Mital reads out preamble at Jammu Wing
JAMMU, NOVEMBER 26: Jammu & Kashmir Legal Services Authority(JKLSA) and Ladakh Legal Services Authority celebrated the 71st Constitution Day   by organizing series of activities.
The Legal Services Institutions started the celebration of the day by participating in a webinar on the topic “Constitution Day” organised by Chandigarh Judicial Academy in which Dr. Balram Gupta, Director (Academics) Chandigarh Judicial Academy, dwelt upon various facets of the constitution including fundamental rights, fundamental duties, basic structure & constitutional morality.
It was followed by reading of the preamble in the Jammu wing as well as Srinagar wing of the High Court of J&K and at all the headquarters of Legal Services Institutions in the UTs of J&K and Ladakh.
At Jammu Wing, the preamble reading was led by   Ms. Justice Gita Mittal, Chief Justice, High Court of J&K in which the Judges of the High Court of J&K and officers of the Registry and staff participated.
Similarly, at Srinagar wing, the reading of preamble was led by   Mr. Justice Ali Mohammad Magrey.
Thereafter, a handbook on Fundamental Duties published by J&K Legal Services Authority was released by  Ms. Justice Gita Mittal, Chief Justice, High Court of J&K and Patron-in-Chief J&K Legal Services Authority, in presence of  Mr. Justice Rajesh Bindal, Executive Chairman, J&K Legal Services Authority and the judges of the High Court of J&K.
 Justice Ms Gita Mittal, in her foreword, stated that the Rights flow from Duties and if everyone performs one’s Duty, Rights would be automatically protected. She further stated that just as the fundamental rights are imperative for the progress of a nation, so are the fundamental duties.
Mr. Justice Rajesh Bindal in his message stated that the objective behind engrafting Article 51-A in the Constitution of India cannot be achieved unless the citizens are made aware of their Constitutional Duties.
The last event of the celebration was an online talk on “Preamble of the Constitution of India and the Idea of Inclusion” by  Gautam Bhatia, Advocate and Research Scholar, Oxford University (U.K).
The programme was attended by the Judicial Officers, Panel Lawyers and PLVs.
