PM Modi greets nation on 74th Republic Day, wears multi-coloured Rajasthani turban


Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted the nation on Thursday on the occasion of India’s 74th Republic Day.

PM Modi said this time, the occasion is also special because the country is celebrating it during the “Amrit Mahotsav” of Independence.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi wore a multi-coloured Rajasthani turban symbolising the diversity of India on the occasion of the 74th Republic day. The first glimpse of PM Modi’s this year’s attire was revealed as PM Modi arrived at the National War Memorial before the Republic Day parade. Clad in a white kurta and pants complemented with a black coat, PM Modi took a white stole. The multicoloured turban with a long tail stood out in the black-and-white ensemble.

“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 the country come true. Happy Republic Day to all fellow Indians!,” Modi tweeted.

At the National War Memorial, PM Modi gave an Air Force Salute. From the National War Memorial, PM Modi set out for Kartavya Path, the beautifully decorated boulevard which will host the Republic Day parade for the first time this year.
