New Delhi: Rehearsals for the Republic Day parade were in full swing on Monday at Rajpath with contingents belonging to different forces practicing for the upcoming event.
Braving the chilly weather, forces including the Indian Navy were seen marching on the ceremonial boulevard, amid low visibility conditions as fog shrouded the area.
