Upholding constitutional value
Upholding constitutional values is one of the major objectives of PeRGo. India’s constitution declares it to be a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic. It clearly mentions that the state must secure justice, equality and liberty to all, promote fraternity, and assure dignity of the individual. However, it is very unfortunate that rather than compliance, we get to see these values in erosion. The concept of socialism has gone to the winds. Seventy percent of India’s wealth is owned by a select few. Inequality reigns supreme. Secularism is under grave threat. Fundamentalist forces threaten to tear society apart and totally destroy the social fabric. We, as awakened citizens of the country, must realise that the responsibility for upholding these constitutional values lies with the people, too. PeRGo remains totally committed towards this ideal.
