Punjab, Haryana and their joint capital Chandigarh on Friday celebrated Independence Day amidst unprecedented security arrangements across the region.

Patriotic fervour and gaiety marked the occasion across the two states and union territory Chandigarh as flag hoisting ceremonies were held at district headquarters, educational institutes and other places, officials said.

The celebrations passed off peacefully as no untoward incident was reported from any part of the region, officials said here.

However, during the celebrations the sky remained overcast at most of the places in Punjab and Haryana, the MeT office said.

Freedom fighters, who played a vital role in the struggle for independence, were remembered on the occasion.

Punjab governor and Chandigarh administrator, Shivraj Patil unfurled the tricolour at a function held here, while chief minister Parkash Singh Badal unfurled the tricolour at a state level function at Patiala.

Punjab's deputy chief minister and ruling Shiromani Akali Dal president Sukhbir Singh Badal unfurled the tricolour at Bathinda.

In Haryana, newly appointed governor Kaptan Singh Solanki unfurled the flag at a function held at Ambala, while chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, unfurled the flag at Panipat as Independence Day was celebrated with much enthusiasm in other parts of the state as well.
