Kolkata: The Kanyashree tableau that has been rejected by the Centre in the Republic Day Parade in New Delhi will be showcased at the Republic Day Parade at Red Road in Kolkata.
"The tableau might have been rejected by the Centre but the people of Bengal who will be present at the programme on Republic Day Parade at Red Road will be delighted to see the tableau.
Kanyashree, the state's social welfare project, was rejected for the Republic Day parade by an expert committee of the Defence ministry earlier this month.
Besides Kanyashree, the state had also proposed the water conservation scheme 'Jol Dhoro Jol Bhoro' and 'Sabuj Sathi' for the parade, but both were rejected.
The United Nations in 2017 had awarded the Kanyashree scheme with Public Service Award.
