Goa's 'save the frog' campaign, Jammu and Kashmir's 'back to village' programme were among themes of the 22 tableaux that rolled down Rajpath here during the 71st Republic Day parade on Sunday. Jammu and Kashmir, which participated in the parade for the first time as a Union Territory, had the "Back to Village'' programme as its theme. The programme launched last year is a first-of-its-kind initiative to reach out to the people at the grassroots level. Goa's tableau depicted its seashore along with its biodiversity and livelihoods apart from highlighting the state's campaign to 'Save the Frog', an anti-frog poaching campaign.
