The first I-Day celebration after the removal of article 370 & 35-A has brought a new ray of confidence among the Indians.

But in Rourkela, it was more than that as the city was attempting for a unique world record and to register its name in the Guinness book of world record.

While many initial reports suggest the actual length of the tricolour was 17Km, the President of the organiser team Santosh Biswal said ‘The actual length is 15.8 kilometre, which breaks the record of Raipur.’

The event has been officially registered its name in Guinness Book of Records for attempting but it will take a couple of weeks for the officials to verify and give an official recognition whether it has qualified for the final record certification or not.
