INDIAN REPUBLIC DAY

On behalf of the Federal Labor Party, we would like to extend our best wishes to everyone
celebrating Indian Republic Day.

On this day in 1950, the Constitution of India came into force, repealing the British
Government of India Act, to found a democratic Republic.

Indians in Australia and around the world come together on this day to honour those that led to the independence of what is today the largest democratic country in the world. Flag
hoisting ceremonies will be held to acknowledge India’s rich history and culture and the
important achievements of Indian people.

Labor acknowledges the outstanding contribution that Indian-Australians have made to
Australia.

Once again we send our best wishes to everyone celebrating Indian Republic Day and wish
you well for the year ahead.
