Delhi: In a speech after inaugurating ‘Pradhanmantri Sangrahalaya’ (Prime Ministers’ museum), which is dedicated to all previous 14 Prime Ministers, Modi said every Prime Minister has contributed immensely in the fulfilment of the goals of constitutional democracy. Modi also bought the first ticket of the museum before its inauguration.

He said it is our responsibility to strengthen democracy, noting that India has a proud tradition of doing so in a democratic manner with one or two exceptions. Modi, however, added that every government formed after Independence has contributed in taking the country to the heights it has achieved today.

“To remember all prime ministers is to know about the journey of independent India,” he said. The government chose the birth anniversary of B R Ambedkar, the key architect of Constitution and a towering leader from the Dalit community, to inaugurate the museum in a gesture resonant with political importance.
