Nod to 10 tableaux for I-Day function

Ten tableaux, including those of Takht Sri Harmandir Sahib gurdwara of Patna Sahib and Mandar Hill in Banka, would enthral audience at the Independence Day function at Gandhi Maidan.

The green light to the tableaux was given in a recent meeting headed by development commissioner S.K. Negi. Patna divisional commissioner N. Vijayalakshmi and Patna district magistrate Manish Kumar Verma attended it.

The tableaux of 10 different departments would depict the development in various sectors through the implementation of schemes launched by the state government. District public relations officer Ravi Bhushan Sahay said the tableau of the art, culture and youth affairs department would depict Eklavya Awasiya Prashikshan Kendra and the Bihar Education Project Council would highlight girls’ education.

The agriculture department would focus on agriculture education in the state in its tableau, while the information and public relations department would project Takht Sri Harmandir Sahib gurdwara, Patna Sahib. Sahay said the tourism department’s tableau would display Mandar hill.

The preparations at Gandhi Maidan for the Independence Day celebrations are going on in full swing. Verma, the Patna district magistrate, said: “Adequate arrangements — from security measures to traffic regularisation — are being made. CCTV cameras would be installed inside and outside the Maidan and doorframe metal detectors would be placed at the entry points.”
