(RTTNews) - Saturday, India celebrated her 64th Republic Day amid tight securities at which Bhutan's king Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck was the chief guest.

The celebration, which shows the kaleidoscopic image of India's cultural heritage and military excellence, commemorates the establishment of the Indian constitution that came into effect in 1950.

The Chief guest Wangchuck came to Rajpath along with President Pranab Mukherjee escorted by horse-mounted presidential bodyguards at a sunny morning.

Earlier in the morning, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh laid a wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyoti eternal flame and paid homage to the 'unknown soldier' at the India Gate war memorial.

The impressive march-past was watched by chief guest, Bhutan king Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, vice president Hamid Ansari, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, defence minister AK Antony, UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and top political and military brass.

Large numbers of security forces were deployed in New Delhi and other part of India especially in the wake of border disputes between India and Pakistan early this month, leaving five soldiers dead on both sides.

Security has been tightened across northeastern states and Kashmir following the boycott call of R-Day celebrations by several militant groups.

On Friday, President Pranab Mukherjee warned that sponsorship of terrorism through non-state actors is a matter of deep concern. This was a clear message to Pakistan that India's good will to them even after some fatal border disputes should not be taken for granted.
