    Judges’ Field to relive I-Day celebration after a Decade

    However, the celebration will be held in a very low key manner this year due to the restrictions on the social gathering

    Guwahati: The historic Judges’ field will host the Independence Day celebration this week almost after 12 years. The state government has decided to change the venue of the official celebration of the event from the Khanapara veterinary playground as the latter now hosts a COVID care centre (CCC).

    Prior to 2008, the Judges’ field was hosting both the Independence Day and Republic Day since Independence. In 2008 the Assam Government decided to reserve the Judges’ Field exclusively for sporting activities.

    Though, the state government initially shifted the venue to Latasil Playground, later changed it again to the Khanapara playground.

    The Kamrup (Metropolitan) district administration in an official statement said that preparation for the I-Day celebration has begun in full swing. However, the celebration will be held in a very low key manner this year due to the restrictions on the social gathering.

    “Assam Police and other para-military forces have been rehearsing the march-past parades. All necessary COVID 19 protocols were also been followed. Everyone participating in the function needs to wear masks and maintain social distancing. The entire pandal has been sanitized,” it said.

    All the entry points of the Judges field have been equipped with thermal scanning facility along with hand washbasins and sanitizers for all.

    No cultural function has been scheduled this year during the I-Day celebration.

    With 2900 new COVID cases detected in last 24 hrs, Assam’s COVID count jumped to 61, 737 including 151 deaths. On Monday, the city registered 382 new cases too.
