Uttar Pradesh's tableau at the Republic Day parade was adjudged the best and awarded by Union Minister Kiren Rijiju on January 28, said the Defence Ministry.

In total 32 tableaux — 17 from state and union territories, nine from Union ministries, departments and paramilitary forces, and six from the Defence ministry — were part of this year’s parade on Rajpath.

The theme of Uttar Pradesh’s tableau was 'Ayodhya: Cultural Heritage of Uttar Pradesh'. The cultural heritage of ancient holy town Ayodhya, a replica of a Ram temple, a glimpse of 'Deepotsav' and various stories from Ramayana epic were depicted in the tableau.

"The tableau of Tripura was adjudged the second best. It depicted promotion of eco-friendly tradition for achieving self-reliance (aatmanirbhar) in socio-economic parameters," the Defence ministry’s statement noted.

Uttarakhand’s tableau on the theme 'Dev Bhoomi — The Land of the Gods' was adjudged third among the states and union territories, it mentioned.
