“Every moment of my life is dedicated to upholding the noble values enshrined in the Constitution of India, given to us by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar,” said Modi.

He further added that it is only due to the Constitution that a person like him, born into poverty and in a backward family, is able to serve the nation.

“Our Constitution gives crores of people hope, strength and dignity,” Modi said.

Today, later in the day, Modi is scheduled to meet President Droupadi Murmu at the Rashtrapati Bhawan to stake claim to form the government.
