Har Ghar Tiranga 2.0
On the occasion of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav,’ celebrating 75 years of India’s independence, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign on July 22, last year. The date, he noted, holds historical significance as it marks the same day the national flag was adopted.
Launching the campaign, Modi had said in a tweet that it will “deepen our connect with the national flag”.
The campaign encourages all citizens of the country to hoist the tricolour flag at their homes, and the second edition will be celebrated from August 13 to August 15, similar to the dates of the previous year.
This August 15, India will celebrate its 76 years independence.
