Karnataka CM unfurls tricolour in Bangalore

Bangalore, Aug 15 : Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah Thursday unfurled the tricolour flag and reviewed the guard of honour at the Field Marshal Manekshaw Parade Ground here to mark India's 67th Independence Day (I-Day) amid tight security.

Under a cloudy sky and on a breezy day, the chief minister went around the ground in an open jeep past contingents of the state police, scouts, guides and students even as martial music rang in the air.

About 10,000 people, including hundreds of children, thronged the venue in the city centre to witness the colourful parade with patriotic fervour and gaiety after an air force chopper showered rose petals on the dais where the tricolour was fluttering.
