Union Home Minister Amit Shah at his residence on Saturday morning was seen hoisting the tricolour along with his wife as the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign starts today. This August 13-August 15 ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign urges people to hoist the national flag at their homes to mark India’s 75th independence day.
The news agency ANI posted a video of Amit Shah hoisting the tricolour with his wife. The ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign is a part of the government’s ‘Azaadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’. From the last few days, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged citizens of the country to hoist flags at their homes and celebrate the 75th independence day and also change their social media display pictures to embrace the spirit of Independence Day celebrations.
Besides, on Saturday, Himanta Biswa Sarma, Assam’s chief minister, also led a morning march in Guwahati in the spirit of the campaign.
Through his twitter handle, he shared photos and videos and wrote in a tweet, “Delighted to begin my day with school students who spontaneously took part in the ‘Prabhat Pheri’ (a traditional morning march) taken out to celebrate #AzadiKaAmritMahotsav ahead of #IndependenceDay. Their chanting of ‘Vande Mataram’ really gave me goosebumps! (sic)”
Apart from that Gujarat chief minister Bhupendra Patel also led an event in the state.
