In view of ongoing renovation and construction work at Maulana Azad Stadium here, the Republic Day annual function of 2019 will be held at University of Jammu Ground.

Pertinent to mention here that the only sports stadium located here in the heart of the city is under renovation after it was took over by the NPCC teams. The stadium will be exclusively being constructed for international level cricket matches.

However, Jammu and Kahmir Chief Secretary, B V R Subrahmanyam while chairing a preparatory meeting for the upcoming Republic Day celebrations, stressed on the civil and police administration to work in close coordination for organizing the functions across the state in a colourful manner, apt to the occasion.

At Srinagar the function will be held at Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket Stadium.

Meanwhile detailed deliberations were held regarding the venues, security arrangements, parade/band contingents of Army, CRPF, Police, School Children, showcasing of tableaus and cultural items, seating arrangements, transport/parking arrangements, sanitation, drinking water, electricity, medical aid and emergency facilities.

“This is a people’s function and their participation in large numbers should be facilitated. Along with other public representatives and prominent citizens, Deputy Commissioners should extend invitation to all recently elected Panchayat and Urban Local Body representatives to grace the occasion” the Chief Secretary said.
