In his letter, Mr. Iyer pointed out that the Mumbai slum-dwellers are a lamentable lot and remain a shock and shame to Indian fraternity, culture and constitutional secularity. The Preamble and other articles like Article 14 and 51 A declare, in no uncertain terms, every Indian's right to dignified life.
