Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday while addressing the monthly radio programme Mann Ki Baat said, “Under the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, from the 13th to the 15th of August, a special movement – ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ is being organized. Let us further this movement by hoisting the National Flag at our homes,” said.” He also mentioned that August 2 is the birth anniversary of Pingli Venkhaiya who designed the National Flag. Hence, as a token of respect he urges all to use ‘tiranga’ as a profile picture in social media accounts between August 2 and August 15.
“My dear countrymen, today we started our discussion on 75 years of Independence, with a visit across the country. The next time we meet, the journey of our next 25 years would have already begun. We all have to join for our beloved tricolour to be hoisted at our homes and those of our loved ones. Do share with me how you celebrated Independence Day, if you did anything special, this time. Next time, we will talk again about the different colours of our Amrit Parv. Till then, I will take leave of you. Thank you very much,” said PM Modi.
The official journey of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav commenced on March 12, 2021, which started a 75-week countdown to our 75th anniversary of independence and will end post a year on August 15, 2023.
