This disappointment comes after the Ministry of Defence rejected all four designs including one portraying the Paika Rebellion.

According to reports, other than Paika Rebellion design, a design was also prepared depicting Berhampur’s famous Thakurani Yatra. The Thakurani Yatra was initially appreciated by the jury panel but later it was rejected following a demo of the tableau.

“Generally the Ministry of Defence selects around 13-14 tableaus every year to participate in the Republic Day. Odisha’s tableau might have been rejected as it was selected for two consecutive years”, said an official of the state’s I&PR Department.
