Hyderabad: City-based Maulana Azad National Urdu University celebrated India’s 72nd Republic Day by thanking the COVID frontline workers for their services in the ongoing pandemic.
After unfurling the tricolor today, Prof S M Rahmatullah, Vice-Chancellor (In-charge), while addressing the gathering, said, “Gathering today in a coronavirus-free environment reflects the hard work and sacrifices of those involved in health, sanitation and police services as well as the effective steps taken by the Central and State Governments. We are all grateful for that.”
Highlighting the importance of the Constitution he said that after independence, there was a need for a constitution that would give all citizens equal status, rights and opportunities to flourish and to participate in the development of the country.

Paying homage to Mahatma Gandhi, he said that Gandhiji in his book “Mere Sapnaon ka Bharat” had already echoed similar views enshrined in the constitution.
