New Delhi: The sports fraternity on Sunday wished the people on the occasion of the 71st Republic Day.
On this day in 1950, India solidified its sovereignty by putting into effect the Constitution of India, which took nearly three years of careful deliberation to finalise.
The first Republic Day was commemorated with a grand parade at the Rajpath, a tradition that continues.
Mary Kom, who was bestowed the Padma Vibhushan, wrote on Twitter: "Happy 71st Republic Day".
Whereas PV Sindhu, who was conferred the Padma Bhushan, wrote: "On the occasion of Republic Day, let's celebrate 70 years of a strong and powerful constitution. Here are Bank of Baroda and I, wishing every proud Indian a Happy Republic Day."
Boxer Vijender Singh said India is blessed with many religions, societies, cultures and languages, however the 'Unity in Diversity' is what something makes him proud. "INDIA is a nation where humanity has lived since ages. It is a country which is blessed with different religions, societies, cultures & languages all interplaying with each other in harmony. PROUD OF UNITY IN DIVERSITY #RepublicDayIndia #RepublicDay2020,"
