The Platform for Popularizing the Constitution is an open group of lawyers, social activists and legal academics which was formed on the 26th of January, in context of the 68th anniversary of the Constitution of India coming into effect. The task was to reflect on the fragile health of the constitutional order in the current political climate and to initiate discussion in a public forum on the meaning of constitutional values and the multifarious threats to it.
