Police parade at Raj Bhavan after HC order

Since 2021, the Covid 19 guidelines are being followed and Republic Day celebrations have been separate in the state. But this year, central government issued orders on January 19th, 2023 to organize Republic Day celebrations including Parade. The state government did not organize and a petition was filed in the High Court. High Court on January 25th ordered that state government must conduct Republic Day Celebrations including Parade.

For this reason, last minute arrangements were made by the state government at Raj Bhavan for a police parade.

Government Chief Secretary Shanti Kumari, DGP Anjani Kumar and other senior officials participated in the ceremony. There were no ministers of KCR government at the Raj Bhavan celebrations.

I offer my tributes to Baba Saheb Dr. B R Ambedkar and other architects of our great Indian Constitution who enshrined the noble principles of liberty, equality, and fraternity.”
