After Republic Day parade concluded and President Pranab Mukherjee, chief guest US President Barack Obama left, Prime Minister Narendra added a special touch to the festivities by walking down the Rajpath for over 400 meters to greet the cheering crowd.
The Election Commission of India marked its first presence at the Republic Day parade Thursday when its tableau rolled down Rajpath depicting a mammoth model of electronic voting machine and banners asking young Indians to vote.
A thick layer of fog enveloped
the national capital this morning depriving spectators a clear
view of the Republic Day parade even though the maximum and
minimum temperatures rose by one degree each from the average.
