Delighted to be at Republic Day parade, says Bangladesh contingent

Appreciating the role of Indian armed forces during the 1971 Indo-Pak war, which led to the birth of a new nation, Bangladesh armed forces contingent is "delighted" at the invitation for the Republic Day parade in the year their country is celebrating 50 years of formation. 

Speaking to Asianet Newsable, Col Chaudhary said, "We are following all the Covid-19 norms. Before boarding for India, we took a Covid test and found 122 personnel negative. When we landed in Delhi, we underwent a test again. We had a test today also."

In the past, the Bangladesh government has honoured several Indian armed forces personnel, some posthumously, for their role in the war.

Indian Army will showcase its military prowess during the parade on January 26 right from rolling of BMT T-90 to BMP2 armoured personnel carrier, Pinaka multiple launch rocket system, Shilka anti-aircraft gun system and Brahmos land-attack missiles.

This year there will be no motorcycle drills either by Army or BSF due to Covid pandemic, an official said.
