New Delhi, Nov 26 (PTI) Supreme Court judge K M Joseph on Saturday said it is the legitimate right and duty of every citizen of the country to prevent the Constitution from being abused.

He said each generation of citizens is duty-bound to remain alert and safeguard the core values that the Constitution seeks to uphold and promote.

Speaking at the valedictory function of the Constitution Day celebrations at the Supreme Court, Justice Joseph said the adoption of the Constitution on January 26, 1949 marked the culmination of a long but uniquely peaceful struggle of millions, who stood shoulder to shoulder burying their differences based on religion, caste and the regions they hailed from.
