75th Independence Day: Public Barred From Parade Ground

The Commissionerate Police on Friday announced that people will not be allowed to view this year’s State-level Independence Day parade in Bhubaneswar as the event will be held under strict compliance of Covid guidelines.

Addressing media in this regard, CP Soumyendra Priyadarshi said that strict perimeter control will be effected in and around the venue of the parade, the Exhibition Ground where Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik will unfurl the Tricolour on the occasion of India’s 75th Independence Day.

During the I-Day parade, Patnaik will take the salute from the march past by three contingents. This year, no student groups have been included in the parade, Priyadarshi said while reviewing the full-dress rehearsal of the parade at the IDCO ground today with DGP Abhay.

Elaborate security arrangements have been made for the I-Day parade event. At least 12 platoons of police force will be deployed while 70 officers will also be mobilised at the spot.

As public entry is restricted to the parade ground, the State I &PR Department has been entrusted to supply the live feed for telecast and webcasting of the event.

Earlier on Thursday, the Twin City Police had issued traffic advisory for the citizens of Bhubaneswar for the State-level Independence Day parade on August 15.
