Prime Minister said all the policies of the central government aim at bringing the people of the last mile into the mainstream of development by offering equal opportunities to all citizens as envisioned by Sardar Patel.

He condoled the loss of lives in the bridge collapse tragedy at Morbi yesterday. Mr. Modi said the centre is offering all possible help to the state government. He assured that the government is standing shoulder to shoulder with the families of the victims.

Apart from the contingents, six Police Sports Medal winners of the Commonwealth Games 2022 also participated in the Parade. Cultural programmes were cancelled in the wake of the Morbi Bridge collapse tragedy.
