The event was scheduled to be held at Burari Ground but it got postponed due to waterlogging at the venue. The chief minister was supposed to attend the event.
“On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the country’s independence, Delhi’s children were going to form the largest tricolour today. But due to flooding of Burari Ground due to rainwater, this programme is currently being postponed. Yesterday, our children also did a wonderful rehearsal for it,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said in a tweet in Hindi.
According to an official, around 50,000 children from Delhi government schools were likely to participate in the event.
