Odisha has celebrated the 72nd Republic Day to commemorate the date of the adoption of the Constitution of India

Bhubaneswar:26/1/21: Odisha has celebrated the 72nd Republic Day to commemorate the date of the adoption of the Constitution of India. To mark the occasion, State-level parade has been held at the Mahatma Gandhi Marg in Bhubaneswar. Odisha Governor Prof Ganeshi Lal unfurled the tricolor in presence of Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik as Guest of Honour. Keeping in mind the Covid-19 situation, the 72nd Republic Day celebration this year is a low key affair as the State government has discouraged large gatherings and the participation of the general public in the wake of the Covid pandemic. Through a tweet, Odisha Governor Prof Ganeshi Lal greets the people of Odisha on 72nd Republic Day.
