With weeks left for the Republic Day, Indian Army continues its rehearsal for the parade on Sunday amid cold conditions in the national capital.

The rehearsals, which began on December 25, start from Raisina Hills and conclude at Rajpath. A crowd of morning joggers was excited seeing the Army personnel during their rehearsals.

Just a few days ago, the Indian Navy started their practice for the Republic Day parade.

Recently, the External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar had confirmed that United Kingdom's Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be attending India's Republic Day celebrations on January 26, 2021, as the chief guest, adding that it is symbolic of a new era of India-UK ties.

India will celebrate its 72nd Republic Day on January 26 next year, honouring the historic date when the country completed its transition towards becoming an independent republic after the Constitution came into effect.
