Agenda : Deliberating upon the relevance
of the 42nd Amendment to the Preamble
of the Indian Constitution.
Over the years, the Lok Sabha committee in Model United Nations has gained a reputation for being a typical MUN committee that stands out for its intense discussions, vicious debates, witty exchanges, and contentious deliberations on various issues pertaining to India. The agenda for this year’s Lok Sabha stands as “Deliberating upon the relevance of the 42nd Amendment to the Preamble of the Indian Constitution” which was enacted in 1976 during the period of Emergency in India. One of the most important changes to this amendment was the addition of three words, "Socialist", "Secular" and "Integrity" to the Preamble of the Constitution, making it the "Preamble of the Socialist, Secular and Democratic Republic of India". The amendment also established Fundamental Duties for citizens, encompassing the obligation to exhibit reverence towards the national flag and anthem, safeguard communal assets, and foster concordance. Moreover, the amendment limited the authority of the judiciary by enacting the provision of "reasonable restrictions" on Fundamental Rights while also increasing the power of the Prime Minister to date.
With that being said, the Executive Board sincerely hopes that the amalgamation of diverse opinions and extensive discourse would lead to better ends.
