Barack Obama may be the first US President to attend the Republic Day parade but he is not the first American leader to be invited for this event, according to a former Indian diplomat.      

Former Foreign Secretary K Srinivasan said today the then President Bill Clinton was invited for the Republic Day parade on behalf of then Prime Minister P V Narasimha Rao in 1994 but he declined as he was not willing to change the timing of his State of the Union address.
