New Delhi, July 13: The Central government will soon launch a nationwide ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign to inspire countrymen to hoist the national flag at their homes to mark the 75th Independence Day.
The initiative has been taken under the aegis of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, for which the Ministry of Culture is the nodal ministry.
The Indian National Flag is a symbol of national pride for the entire nation and to further honor the national flag, Union Home Minister Amit Shah who oversees all efforts under Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav has approved the program of ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’.
It envisages encouraging Indians everywhere to hoist the national flag.
