New Delhi [India], November 26 (ANI): On the occasion of Constitution Day, Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu on Friday asserted that the functioning of democracy in the country conforms to the Constitutional principles of ensuring equal rights and justice for all citizens and it needs no validation from any external agencies.
While releasing the English and Hindi versions of books titled "Democracy, Politics and Governance" authored by Dr A.

Naidu further stressed that to be an Indian national is all about adhering to the spirit and philosophy of the Constitution which is aimed at promoting fraternity among all citizens as equals and said "every national is required to rise above the divisions of caste, creed, colour, region and religion''.
He also stressed the need for extensive research by journalists and keeping the news and views separate, and suggested that journalists and commentators should be imbued with "passion, purpose, perspective and perseverance". (ANI)
