THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Efforts are on from various quarters to undermine the sacred unity of the nation, Speaker G Karthikeyan has said. He was speaking after paying tributes at the statues of national leaders on the Assembly grounds in connection with the Republic Day celebrations.

 It is the duty of all Indians to protect the unity and integrity of the nation. The  Republic Day celebration is an occasion to renew this commitment.

 There was also a one-hour music programme by the Legislature Secretariat music troupe on the occasion. This was for the first time that the Republic Day was celebrated in such a manner, according to a statement issued here.

 Various organisations celebrated the Republic Day with programmes. District Judge B Sudheendra Kumar inaugurated the celebration organised by the Thiruvananthapuram Bar Association.

 The democratic system, which faces stiff challenges, is often saved by the Judiciary, the District Judge said. He was speaking after inaugurating the Republic Day celebrations and the seminar ‘Challenges faced by Indian democracy’ organised by the Thiruvananthapuram Bar Association.

 As a system, the Judiciary operates independently and the faith of the public in it has grown, he said.

 Critic M G Radhakrishnan said that the activities of the Judiciary play a clear role in the democratic mode of governance. Bar Association president Adv K P Jayachandran presided over the function. Sub Judge V K Babu Prakash, association secretary Adv Anayara Shaji and M S Sajith also spoke.
