On this occasion, LG hoisted the national flag and received the Guard of Honour. He greeted the officers and staff of the Secretariat present during the event.
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hoisted the national flag and delivered the customary address to the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort. The Independence Day function was relatively muted this year in terms of participation of people in view of COVID-19 crisis.
