New Delhi, Mar 6: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Tuesday said it was imperative that people are made aware about the importance of their duties as asserting one’s own rights without rendering duties is against the fundamental value of the Constitution.
Speaking at the inauguration of the new building premises of the Central Information Commission (CIC) here, he said just like the RTI (Right to Information), the concept of ‘Act Rightly’ should be discussed and the citizens should be informed about their duties along with their rights.
He urged the CIC, which has a large public interaction, to take up the task of making aware the citizens about ‘Act Rightly’.
Claiming of rights without rendering duties is against the core value of the Constitution, Modi said as he added that the wrong practice of misusing rights of people and powers for self-interest or vested interests should end.
