Kejri skips annual NCC R-Day parade


New Delhi : Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who has been away from the national capital campaigning for his party in poll-bound states of Goa and Punjab, skipped the annual customary National Cadet Corps Republic Day Camp this year.

Sources said Kejriwal was supposed to attend the NCC Republic Day Camp on January 9 but cancelled his scheduled visit. “The Delhi Chief Minister was supposed to pay a visit to the NCC camp. He cancelled his visit and thereafter there was no communication from his office,” a Defence Ministry official said. Kejriwal, however, attended the Republic Day function organised by the Delhi government on Wednesday.

Since the NCC R-Day camp is held in Delhi, it is customary that the Delhi chief minister takes the Guard of Honour.
