New Delhi, September 22: India is not a Constitutional but civilizational democracy, said Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday.

Vice President Jagdeep Dhankar inaugurated the Lok Manthan, a cultural event of Prajnah Pravah, an affiliate of the Rashtriya Swayam Sewak Sangh in Guwahati.

Dhankar, speaking on the occasion, hailed democratization of the Padma Awards, saying that “patronage is no more key to getting the civilian honours in the country”.

Speaking on the occasion, Sarma said that India is facing a civilizational challenge.

“We have to give a big collective response to the attack on our civilization by the Left and secular people. They have to be responded academically by our people with the spirit of welfare works,” said Sarma.

The Chief Minister also claimed that “we have to teach them (Left and seculars) the lessons that India is not a Union of states, but a living motherland”.

“India is our pious karmabhoomi. Today there is a civilizational challenge for India, and we have to teach such people that Bharatvarsh is not just a piece of land that got freedom in 1947. Bharat had been for ages, and it would remain so for ages,” added Sarma.

The Chief Minister also stated that he keeps saying repeatedly that India is not a Constitutional democracy, but “we are a civilizational democracy”.

“The Constitution has our respect, but most respectful is the Indian civilization,” he added.

Lokmanthan 2022, the Guwahati Edition, is being held to celebrate the ‘Lok Sanskriti’, said the RSS affiliate, adding “the traditions of the people reflected in the collective culture has been flowing through the hills and dales of North East Bharat along with the entire country”.

Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi also attended the inaugural ceremony.
