"Many wishes for Republic Day. This time this occasion is also special because we are celebrating it during the Amrit Mahotsav of Independence. We wish to move ahead unitedly to make the dreams of the great freedom fighters of our country come true," Modi tweeted.

The Republic Day parade in the national capital started from Vijay Chowk and moved to Red Fort. Kartavya Path witnessed the 21 gun salute given to President Droupadi Murmu during the parade with 105mm Indian field guns.
