What are the history and origins of Republic Day
The Republic Day is a national holiday in India commemorating the day on which the country’s constitution came into effect. The constitution was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949, and came into effect on 26 January 1950 with a democratic government elected after the first general elections held in December 1951. This day is also celebrated as the National Day in India.
The concept of a republic in India was first proposed by M. N. Roy, a founding member of the Communist Party of India, in his book The Future of Indian Politics (1935). In this book, Roy advocated for a “sovereign socialist republic” as the best form of government for India.
The first steps towards creating a republic in India were taken by the Indian National Congress (INC) party, which was at the time the largest and most influential political party in the country. In 1929, the INC declared its commitment to “complete independence” from British rule. This declaration was followed by a number of other political parties also declaring their support for an independent India.
The process of drafting a constitution for India began in 1946 with the appointment of a Constitutional Assembly by the British government. The Assembly was tasked with preparing a constitution for India that would be applicable to all provinces and princely states. After several years of deliberations, the Assembly finally adopted the Constitution of India on 26 November 1949. The Constitution came into effect on 26 January 1950, marking the beginning of the Republic of India.
