This chapter helps the readers to understand how the 1950 Constitution evolved out of an ideational battle in which the founding fathers participated to pursue their preferred line of thinking. Out of an analytical scan of the debates, it also makes an argument that the 1950 Constitution was as much an outcome of a concern for the establishment of a constitution-governed democratic regime in India as the fulfilment of a common desire for creating a space for liberal constitutionalism to strike roots and flourish. Jawaharlal Nehru, by placing the Objectives Resolution on 13 December 1946, set out the ideological goals that they nurtured during the long-drawn battle for freedom from British rule. While Nehru laid down the ideological foundation of the Constitution, BR Ambedkar created a blueprint by identifying the areas of concerns that needed attention. Ambedkar's concern for constitutional morality was shared by Rajendra Prasad, the Chairman of the Constituent Assembly.
