AGARTALA, Aug 14 (TIWN): Multi-layered security arrangements are in place for the 73rd Independence Day celebrations at the Assam Rifles ground and across Tripura’s various places which are selected for the celebrations. Assam Rifles is the ground from where Chief Minister Biplab Deb will address the nation on August 15, officials said. In view of the border threats the security has been tightened across the national capital and the neighboring border areas. There will be elaborate traffic arrangements with the optimal deployment of staff and signage for public convenience.A watch is being kept with the installation of around of CCTV cameras in and around the Assam Rifles ground, which will see the presence of ministers, top bureaucrats, dignitaries, and common people during the programme. The roads leading to the Assam Rifles will also be under surveillance. Various colourful programmes will also be organized to mark the 73rd Independence Day.

India will be ushering into the 73rd year of freedom and will celebrate Independence Day on August 15, 2019, i.e. tomorrow.As India steps into its 73rd Independence Day on August 15, the preparations for the celebration are in full swing.

On Thursday, 15 August, India will celebrate its Independence Day. The celebrations will come days after the Indian government removed the last remaining vestiges of autonomy from the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir, many of whose residents have long made clear their desire for independence from India. Granting the state independence was not acceptable to India under Jawaharlal Nehru in 1947 and it is clearly much less acceptable to India under Narendra Modi now.

Back in 1947, when the British left, the 500-and-something — historians do not even agree on how many — princely kingdoms in the territory of modern India were asked to choose between India and Pakistan. These princely states of varying sizes and characters had remained nominally independent until then. They occupied more than a third of the geographical area of undivided India, and they were ruled by Maharajas and Nawabs who ruled over them as their ancestors had, under authority of the divine right of kings. Notions of equality between rulers and subjects were so distant as to be unworldly. Nor did the subjects necessarily have any rights.
