Journalists accredited to cover the 59th Independence Day celebration, had the shock of their lives, when they were asked to climb onto a tipper truck, to be carried around to take photos and videos.
Some of the journalists were angry at the gesture but still had to hop on the truck to get the job done.
Security arrangements according to some of the journalists, did not allow them to get close to some of the activities at the parade grounds The most dangerous part was when they had to get onto the track with a ladder which looked extremely precarious.
Photos of the event have been circulated on social media with several people criticising the arrangements while others poked fun at the unfortunate journalists.[fancygallery id=”17″ album=”167″]
