Several government buildings, including Parliament House and Rashtrapati Bhavan, were illuminated on Wednesday, on the eve of Independence Day.

Transport Bhavan, RBI Building, Krishi Bhavan and Shastri Bhavan were also decked up to mark the country’s 72nd Independence Day.

Illuminating important buildings on the occasion of Independence Day is an old tradition followed in the country.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will unfurl the national flag from the ramparts of the historic Red Fort on Wednesday morning to a 21-gun salute, and then address the nation.

Modi’s speech will be streamed live on Google and YouTube for the first time this year and people can search for Independence Day to see his address, reports said. Public broadcaster Prasar Bharati collaborated with the search engine giant and the video-sharing website to telecast the programme live online, they added.
