Bhubaneswar: When the entire nation is locked in serious heated debates for and against Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), National Register of Citizens (NRC) and National Population Register (NPR), OMMCOM NEWS team put a simple question to Bhubaneswar denizens as to why Republic Day is observed.

While a few could give the correct answer, most of the answers ranged from being hilarious to stupid.

While one said that it was being observed as mandated by Abraham Lincoln’s principle of democracy, many said that it was being observed since our country got independence on this day, another said she had no idea.
