Watch: Independence Day dress rehearsal at Srinagar stadium
Dress rehearsals were conducted in Srinagar for Independence Day celebrations. The practice sessions were held at Srinagar's Sher-i-Kashmir stadium. Members of security forces were seen practicing march-past. Dancers were also seen preparing cultural performances. The Central government has asked heads of Gram Panchayats in the erstwhile state to hoist the tricolour on August 15. A lockdown in the region continues in the aftermath of abrogation of J&K's special status.
