RAIPUR: There is no place for violence in the Constitution as well as in “our” culture, President Ram Nath Kovind said today, as he hailed the sacrifices of security forces involved in anti-Naxal operations in Chhattisgarh.
“In some parts of the country, a few people, misguided by Naxalism, tried to create environment of violence and fear. Our culture and tradition and, above all, our Constitution do not have any place for violence,” he said.
