For the first time, a contingent of Armed Forces of Bangladesh will participate in the Republic Day Parade in Delhi. This troop will comprise 122 jawans of Bangladesh. Fifty years of diplomatic relations have been completed between the two countries. India has given special importance to the participation of a large party of a neighboring friendly country in the Republic Day celebrations. The Bangladesh contingent will be led by Commander Lt Col Abu Mohammad Shahnoor Shan and his deputy Lt Farhan Isharaq and flight lieutenant Sibat Rahman. The contingent will include Bangladesh Army soldiers, Bangladeshi Navy sailors and Bangladesh Air Force air warriors.
This Bangladesh armed force is excited to participate in the 72nd Republic Day celebrations at Rajpath in Delhi. This year is also the 50th anniversary of Bangladesh’s liberation struggle. The Bangladeshi Army contingent comprises members of all the three wings of the armed forces of Bangladesh (Army, Air Force and Navy).
A total of 18 contingents of the armed forces, paramilitary forces, Delhi Police, NCC and NSS will participate in the parade along with 36 bands in the Republic Day parade in Delhi. The “full dress rehearsal” of the parade was held on Saturday morning.
