Unable to get input data from Form submit GET request in laravel 5.1

I have a search form that is sending a GET request to the method that it is using to view the form:

                <form class="form-horizontal" method="GET" action="">
<div class="form-group form-group-sm">
<div class="col-sm-3">
<input type="text" name="inputdate" class="form-control datepicker" placeholder="Date" >
<div class="col-sm-2">
<button class="btn btn-primary btn-sm btn-block" type="submit">
<i class="fa fa-search" aria-hidden="true"></i>

And the route:

'middleware' => 'auth',
'prefix' => '!',
'namespace' => 'LoggedIn',
'as' => 'LoggedIn.',
), function() {


'prefix' => 'StudentModule',
'namespace' => 'StudentModule',
'as' => 'StudentModule.'
), function () {


'prefix' => 'StudentHomeWork',
'as' => 'StudentHomeWork.',
), function () {

Route::get('/', array(
'as' => 'index',
'uses' => '[email protected]'




And my controller:

public function index()
$searchParam = request('inputdate') ? request('inputdate') : date('Y-m-d');

echo $searchParam; // this is showing no data

The problem is, i couldn’t get the data from submitted form. I have used every option that i found in stackoverflow but couldn’t get the data. Can anyone point me out what i am missing! My laravel version is 5.1

Note: I am using this method in Laravel 5.8 + 6. Which is working just fine
