In the run-up to India's 75th anniversary of independence, the government has planned the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' (tricolour at every home) exercise.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday urged people to participate in the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ movement by flying the tricolour from August 13 to 15.
In the run-up to India’s 75th anniversary of independence, the government has planned the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ (tricolour at every home) exercise.
Shah said in a series of Hindi tweets that Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the campaign during the ‘Azadi Ki Amrit Mahotsav.’
The tricolour will be hoisted on approximately 20 crore houses across the country as part of this campaign, which will “work to further brighten the unbroken flame of patriotism in the minds of every citizen, especially the youth,” he said.
‘I urge everyone to participate in this campaign by flying the tricolour from August 13 to 15, using the hashtag #HarGharTiranga’, he wrote.
The home minister stated that by doing so, people will be able to increase respect and attachment to the tricolour among the younger generation, as well as tell them about the sacrifices of the heroes who fought for freedom.
