Will be seated in special area for frontline workers
This year’s Republic Day parade at Patna’s Gandhi Maidan will be quite different as several departments of the state government will showcase tableaux, promoting Covid vaccination and their efforts to keep the virus at bay. The district administration has already distributed masks, sanitiser and other items among the people involved in construction of tableaux.
The tableaux will highlight how the government departments adopted new normal to counter the pandemic. Though common people will not be allowed to witness the parade in view of Covid pandemic this time, those attending the event will have to maintain social distancing norms, just like last year’s Independence Day celebrations.
A special area will be earmarked at the venue for Covid-19 frontline workers, who have been invited to attend the event as guests. The frontline workers will be felicitated for the services they have been rendering to the society amid pandemic. More than 80 Covid warriors, including health and sanitation workers, will attend the event.
