The Indian National Congress, at its Lahore session in 1929, passed a resolution demanding ‘Poorna Swaraj’ or full freedom and asking people to observe January 26, 1930 as Independence Day. Although the Indian Constitution was adopted on November 26, 1949 by the Constituent Assembly, it came into effect on January 26, 1950 to commemorate the day of the declaration.
Today being 26-Jan, let us look at this day as not only the day of Republic & Sovereignty but also the day of Purna Swaraj and declaration of complete independence which finally resulted in freedom at midnight and our tryst with destiny.
Happy Republic Day & Happy Purna Swaraj Day!!
