Bangalore: Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday hoisted the national flag and received the guard of honour at the Field Marshal Manekshaw parade ground here to mark the 68th Independence Day.

On a bright sunny day, after the national anthem was rendered, the chief minister went around the sprawling ground in an open jeep, inspecting the contingents of police and students as their bands played.

About 10,000 people, including hundreds of children, thronged the venue in the city centre to witness the colourful parade. An army chopper showered rose petals on the dais.
