Independence Day 2023: As the nation's capital prepares to commemorate the 77th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence on Tuesday i.e. August 15, substantial preparations have been made to accommodate the expected large crowd.
In light of recent unrest in Haryana's Nuh and surrounding districts, the Delhi Police are going above and beyond to ensure strict monitoring and security.
In preparation for the Independence Day celebrations, the Delhi Police have increased security throughout the city. Vehicles are being inspected thoroughly, and security has been beefed up around the city.
In honour of Independence Day, the historic Rail Bhawan and Krishi Bhawan have been decked with vivid tricoloured lights.
Furthermore, enhanced security mechanisms have been deployed at the historic Red Fort, the venue of the Independence Day celebrations.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi will lead the nation in commemorating the 77th anniversary of India's independence. The ancient Red Fort will host the monumental event on August 15.
Notably, about 1,800 people from various professions have been invited to participate as 'Special Guests' in the festivities at the Red Fort.
The Defence Ministry organised this outstanding event, as stated in a statement issued on Sunday.
The event will culminate with Prime Minister Modi hoisting the national flag and delivering an address to the nation from the historic walls of the Red Fort.
This year's Independence Day celebration has special significance because it concludes the 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav,' a journey launched by Prime Minister Modi on March 12, 2021 at Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad.
This journey represents India's entry into the 'Amrit Kaal,' representing the renewed desire to achieve the enormous objective of transforming India into a developed nation by 2047.
This year's guest list is larger than the previous year's, with invitations extended to 1,800 'Special Guests.'
This approach is consistent with the government's commitment to the notion of 'Jan Bhagidari' (people's involvement), which is an embodiment of the Ministry's vision for inclusive governance and communal nation-building efforts.
