Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday morning wished the Indian nation on the occasion of 72nd Republic Day.
The Prime Minister took to Twitter on Republic Day and said: “Wishing all the people of India a Happy #RepublicDay. Jai Hind!”
Meanwhile, the Parade at Rajpath in the national capital will begin at 9 am. President Ram Nath Kovind will unfurl the national flag at Red Fort.
A total of 32 tableaux — 17 of various states and UTs, nine of ministries and six from the defence arm — will be seen going down Rajpath this year. Among these, the tableaux of Ladakh –– the Union Territory that was created in 2019 after bifurcation of Jammu & Kashmir –– will be included for the first time.
With Covid-19 protocols in place and the protesting farmers’ tractor march scheduled today after the Republic Day celebrations in New Delhi will certainly present a different look.
Moreover, for the first time in 55 years, there will also be no chief guest at this year’s parade.
