"On this day, we celebrate the principles such as equality, social inclusion, justice, and proportional representation that underpin our constitution," he stated.
Speaking as the chief guest, State Minister for Water Resources Zaheed Farooque expressed happiness over the increasing trends of bilateral engagements between the two countries.
