On Friday, PM Narendra Modi requested the people of India to strengthen the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ movement by displaying the tricolour at their homes from August 13-15 as the country celebrates 75 years of independence. The prime minister tweeted that the movement to hoist the tricolour at every home to mark “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” will “deepen our connection with the national flag.”
Modi said, “Today, 22nd July has a special relevance in our history. It was on this day in 1947 that our National Flag was adopted. Sharing some interesting nuggets from history including details of the committee associated with our Tricolour and the first Tricolour unfurled by Pandit Nehru.”
He also added, “Today, we recall the monumental courage and efforts of all those who dreamt of a flag for free India when we were fighting colonial rule. We reiterate our commitment to fulfil their vision and build the India of their dreams.”
In order to create a feeling of patriotism in every citizen of the country, the Central Government has announced an excellent program ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ i.e. every citizen of the country should put up the tricolour in his house.
