No foreign chief guest at R-Day after UK PM called off visit

Jan 12, 2021 12:00 IST

After British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s last-minute decision to cancel his Republic Day visit due to the spread of mutant Covid-19 virus in the UK, India has decided to go ahead with a truncated parade without a chief guest, the Hindustan Times has reported. This will be the first time in over five decades that the Republic Day celebrations would not have a foreign dignitary as the chief guest. President Ramnath Kovind will take the salute at the parade this time. The report said that the government did not want to put any foreign dignitary in an awkward situation as a last-minute acceptance of India’s invitation could be potentially embarrassing for the invitee back home as the head of state would be seen as a replacement.
