Prime Minister Modi informed that on this day in the year 1947, the tricolour was adopted as India’s National Flag. He further shared details of the committee that was associated with the tricolour and the first Tiranga unfurled by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. PM Modi also asked the citizens to join the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign.
As part of ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign, to be carried out under the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav‘, the tricolor will be hoisted atop more than 20 crore houses across the country for three days next month.
Over 100 crore people will participate in the campaign to rededicate themselves to the service of Mother India. It will greatly contribute to inculcating a new sense of patriotism among people, according to an official statement.
Earlier, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath had asked the people of the state to hoist the national flag over their houses during the “Swatantrata Saptah” from August 11 to 17 as part of celebrations to mark 75 years of India’s independence. Such selfies should be posted on social media on the occasion, he had said. The best-performing districts would be rewarded, he added.
