Republic Day celebrations for the elite only

I found the R-Day celebrations being attended mainly by the high and mighty on invitation and hardly any sight of common man was there. In the name of security, only the elite are allowed to witness. What about the 80% of India which constitutes the marginalized and rural poor? Where is the R-Day celebrations for them? It was mainly the military mite on show. The cultural display was far behind. There was hardly any thing to showcase the efforts for upliftment of the poor, except just one tableau on IAY. Should it not be the priority of the Government to focus on the 80% needy population of India? Why not wean away from terrorism and wars and get in to real development of the nation? Why not introduce transparency for accountability in all actions of all for transforming India from a poor nation to a rich nation?
