Republic Day celebrations to begin today; PM Modi to unveil Netaji’s hologram statue

New Delhi: Starting this year, the Republic Day celebrations will begin from 23rd January, instead of the 24th January. The change has been made to include Netaji’s birthday in the celebrations, which falls on January 23.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on the occasion of Netaji’s 125th birth anniversary, will unveil the hologram statue of the freedom fighter at India Gate, on Sunday at around 6 pm.

“At a time when the entire nation is marking the 125th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, I am glad to share that his grand statue, made of granite, will be installed at India Gate. This would be a symbol of India’s indebtedness to him,” PM Modi had said in a tweet.

Till the time the work on Netaji’s granite statue is completed, a 28-feet-long hologram statue will be installed under a canopy, which used to have a statue of King George V that was removed in 1968, the Prime Minister’s Office said in a statement. This hologram statue will be later replaced by a 25-foot-long “grand statue” of Netaji made of granite.

Meanwhile, as a tribute to Netaji, the Films Division will be screening today two documentaries on his life, “Indomitable Spirit” and “Selfless Service to the Nation”, said Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.
