Institutions have come under stress in recent times, former President Pranab Mukherjee said on Friday, at a conference on ‘Towards Peace, Harmony and Happiness: Transition to Transformation’ organised by the Pranab Mukherjee Foundation here.
“Our Constitution provides a delicate balance of power between various institutions of the state. The balance has to be maintained. In the recent past, these institutions have come under severe strain. There is widespread cynicism and disillusionment with the functioning of these institutions. To restore their credibility, the correctives have to come from within,” he said.
