The dress rehearsal for the Republic Day function was held at Guru Nanak Stadium on Friday.

Earlier, the function was supposed to be organised at SCD Government College. However, on Friday, the administration changed the venue to Guru Nanak Stadium due to inclement weather.

The city had received heavy rainfall two days back. Therefore, the venue was shifted.

Even on the Independence Day, the function as well the venue had to be shifted to the Guru Nanak Stadium at the last minute because of heavy rainfall on the intervening night of August 14 and 15.

The Police Commissioner inspected the parade on Friday. On January 26, however, Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal will inspect the parade and hoist the flag.
