Republic Day 2020 Parade Live Updates: PM Modi to pay homage to martyrs at National War Memorial
The 71st Republic Day would be celebrated today. The 90-minute Republic Day ceremony will commence with Prime Minister Narendra Modi visiting the National War Memorial near the India Gate. The war memorial was inaugurated in February 2019, where the names of soldiers who laid down their lives for the country post-independence, are carved. PM Modi will lead the nation in paying tributes to the martyrs by laying a wreath. Notably, this is for the first time that the prime minister would pay homage to martyrs at the National War Memorial instead of Amar Jawan Jyoti.
After paying tributes to the martyrs, PM Modi and others would head to the Rajpath. For the Republic Day 2020 celebrations, India has invited Brazilian President Jair Messias Bolsonaro as the chief guest. President Ram Nath Kovind will host the chief guest.
