Online Sambalpur Team wishes a Happy Republic Day 2024

India marks its Republic Day annually on January 26. This year, the day falls on Thursday, with citizens of the country marking it as the 75th Republic Day.

Republic Day commemorates the adoption of the Constitution of India on January 26, 1950. While India gained independence from the British Raj in 1947, it wasn’t until January 26, 1950, that the Constitution of India came into effect, and the country became a sovereign state, declaring it a republic.

The Constituent Assembly held its first session on December 9, 1946, and the last on November 26, 1949, and then the Constitution was adopted a year later. Dr BR Ambedkar headed the Drafting Committee of the Constitution and on this day, India also marks Constitution Day.

The Republic Day 2024 parade is set to commence at 10:30 am on January 26, following the route from Vijay Chowk to Kartavya Path. The venue will accommodate approximately 77,000 people, with 42,000 reserved for the general public.

The themes this year are likely to echo sentiments of “Viksit Bharat” and “Bharat – Loktantra ki Matruka,” emphasising India’s essential qualities as a democracy.
