On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi put ‘tiranga’ as the display picture of his social media accounts and request people to do the same as part of a collective movement to celebrate the Tricolour.
Followed by Modi, senior BJP leaders, including Union Home Minister Amit Shah and party president J P Nadda to indulge into the trend.
Modi in his Mann ki Baat radio broadcast on Sunday said that the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is turning into a mass movement and urged people to put ‘Tiranga’ as the profile picture of their social media accounts between 2 and 15 August.
This morning, Modi tweeted “It is a special 2nd August today! At a time when we are marking Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, our nation is all set for Har Ghar Tiranga, a collective movement to celebrate our Tricolour. I have changed the DP on my social media pages and urge you all to do the same.”
At the same time, Modi also paid homage to the Pingali Venkayya, who had designed the flag, on his birth anniversary. Modi said, “Our nation will forever be indebted to him for his efforts of giving us the Tricolour, which we are very proud of. Taking strength and inspiration from the Tricolour, may we keep working for national progress.”
