Annoyed with the kind of treatment extended to their party chief, Congress Leaders alleged NDA Government is indulging in cheap politics. Main Opposition questions when the practice of allotting front row seat to Congress President has been changed. Even BJP Chief Amit Shah was allotted front row seat since NDA Government was formed in 2014.
Congress, however, maintained Rahul Gandhi would attend the parade irrespective of the seating arrangements. The Prince conveyed Republic Day wishes to the Indians and urged people to renew the lifelong pledge to protect our constitution.
Whereas, BJP refuted the version of Congress by saying Sonia Gandhi was assigned seat in front row at Republic Day parade as the spouse of former Prime Minister.
