Uttar Pradesh’s capital, Lucknow, is all set to witness the country’s largest drone show on the occasion of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, 75 years of India’s independence. The drone show will be based on the theme of the 1857 freedom struggle and will be held at The Residency, Lucknow at 6 pm today.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, minister of state for culture Meenakshi Lekhi and other senior leaders will be present on the occasion. The idea of the first Indian freedom struggle from 1857 to 1974 would be presented through 500 drones. It would be accompanied by music, laser lights and colourful drone acrobatics.

UP’s Principal Secretary, Tourism and Culture, Mukesh Meshram told India Today, “The mega drone will be held on the occasion of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav and the completion of hundred years of the Chauri Chaura movement. Students will be told the history of Indian independence through this drone show which uses modern technology.”

Mesharm added that it is for the first time that 500 drones will be used to show the Indian freedom struggle from 1857 to 1974. He said that earlier 250 drones had presented a similar show.

A special team of Russian drone engineers is camping here and 500 drones have been procured for this purpose. The mega drone show is being organised by the Union Ministry of Culture and the department of tourism and culture, Uttar Pradesh. A special light and sound show based on the history of The Residency will also be inaugurated today, another charming attraction of the event.
