The Republic Day celebrations will now begin every year from January 23 instead of January 24 to include the birth anniversary of Subhas Chandra Bose, government sources told NDTV.
“This is in line with Narendra Modi government’s focus on celebrating/commemorating important aspects of our history and culture,” the sources added.
The government had earlier started the celebration of Subhas Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary as Parakram Divas.
Other such days, observance of which have become an annual affair, are August 14 as Partition Horrors Remembrance Day, October 31 as National Unity Day (birth anniversary of Sardar Patel), November 15 as Janjatiya Gaurav Divas (Birsa Munda’s birth anniversary), November 26 as Constitution Day and December 26 as Veer Baal Divas (a tribute to the four sons of Guru Gobind Singh), sources added.
