Odisha Tableau Rejected at Republic Day Parade in New Delhi

Bhubaneswar, Jan 26: While all the states participated at the 66th Republic parade in the national capital showing their cultures, the Tableau from Odisha could not be taken part at the auspicious event, which was witnessed by US President Barack Obama and US first lady Michelle Obama as the Chief Guest. 

This was unfortunate that the Tableau was rejected for the Republic Day parade. The opposition parties Congress and BJP did not spare a chance to blame the ruling BJD for this.

However, the BJD blamed the central government for the rejection of tableau. This is yet unclear why Odisha tableau was not selected for the parade for the display on this occasion today, which was historical. This is for the second consecutive year Odisha tableau did not join the parade.

Similarly, the tableau from West Bengal was not allowed at the event. The TMC claimed that the Centre did not allow their tableau that depicted the path breaking Kanya Shree initiative.
