Indian politicians mark 60 years of democratic parliament

Yesterday (May 13th) Indian politicians celebrated 60 years of parliament with a special day-long session at the Sansad Bhavan in New Delhi.

At the event, a series of speakers took the opportunity to detail how democracy has helped the country improve and grow since the Indian constitution was drawn up in 1950, the New York Times reported.

Among those speaking to the Upper House of Parliament was India's prime minister Manmohan Singh, who spoke of the country's "unflinching commitment to pursuing a democratic path to achieving our social and economic salvation".
