Rafale fighter jets will be one of major attractions during Republic Day parade this year.

An unprecedented security cover has been put in place in and around Delhi for Republic Day. While the main traditional event will be held at Rajpath where India’s military might and cultural diversity will be on display, farmers’ tractor rally across several routes in the national capital will keep the security forces on their toes. One of the major attractions at this year’s Republic Day parade will be the flypast by Rafale fighter jets. Sukhoi-30 MKI fighter jets, T-90 tanks, the Samvijay electronic warfare system will also enthrall the audience. Total 32 tableaus — 17 from states and union territories, six from the Defence ministry, and nine from other Union ministries and paramilitary forces — depicting the nation’s rich cultural heritage, economic progress and defence prowess will also roll down the Rajpath at the Republic Day parade. For the first time, the 122-member contingent of the Bangladesh armed forces will also march on Rajpath.
