Amid a Centre vs states tussle at the exclusion of Bengal and Tamil Nadu’s tableaux from the approaching Republic Day Parade and the executive ministers writing to Top Minister Narendra Modi searching for an intervention, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman mentioned it used to be a very powerful to “forestall seeing dangerous politics in a show that celebrates India”.
Taking to Twitter, Sitharaman defined the process of collection of tableaux for the parade. “States, GoI ministries & PSUs ship proposals for #RepublicDay tableaux annually. The length of Parade itself is restricted. An Professional Committee of eminences from the humanities shortlist from the ones won. For RD 2022, GoI won 56 proposals; 21 had been shortlisted,” she mentioned.
The minister added: “Present standards and recommendations for variety had been scrupulously adopted. Since @narendramodi was @PMOIndia: 2018 & 2021: Kerala’s tableau decided on. 2016, 2017, 2019, 2020 & 2021: Tamil Nadu decided on. 2016, 2017, 2019 & 2021: West Bengal decided on.”
She closed her argument by way of pronouncing: “By the way, this 12 months the tableau of @CPWDGOV comprises Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. Forestall seeing dangerous politics in a show that celebrates India.”
