In another tweet, Modi quoted India's first president Rajendra Prasad's words that no matter how beautiful, well-organised and strong any Constitution is made, if it is not run by the true, fearless, selfless servants of the country, then it cannot do anything.
This spirit of Rajendra Prasad is like a guiding light, he said in his tweet in Hindi.
