Many on social media expressed disappointment on the Jago float of the State of Punjab at the Republic Day Parade. The argument was that Punjab had more to show case than ‘Jago.’ In the Past, Punjab has highlighted it’s agricultural dominance, Sikh Heritage, honoring major Sikh Empire figures along with Nationalistic Heros. However, there appeared to be something missing from Punjab’s float.
Whereas, the Delhi Govt highlighted education on their float and the Haryana Govt’s ‘Beti Bachao’ received an outstanding response.
Here are some of the floats from the Republic Day Parade:
The theme of the state’s tableau is ‘Jago’ which is pre-wedding ceremony which usually happens the night before a Punjabi wedding and is a chance for friends and family to rejoice and dance together in celebration.Republic Day parade
