Jammu, 07 Aug: AAs part of the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign, Patiala Cultural Center of the Northern Zone (Ministry of Culture, Government of India) in collaboration with Bhartiya Kala Kendra organized a cultural program in Raipur Satwari on Sunday.

On the occasion, former lawmaker and senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) official Vikram Randhawa was the chief guest, while Secretary Ramesh Chib, Bhartiya Kala Kendra, Avtar Singh Naib Sarpanch, Capt (Retd) Kehar Singh, Kusum Tikkoo, Lokpal Chouhan, Mandeep Chib, Hans Raj, Kamal Kumar, Narinder Chib and many more were also present.

Addressing the rally, the former lawmaker said “Har Ghar Tiranga” is a campaign under the umbrella of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to encourage people to bring Tiranga home and hoist it to mark the 75th India’s Independence Day.

“Our relationship with the flag has always been more formal and institutional than personal. Bringing the flag home collectively as a nation in the 75th year of independence thus becomes symbolic not only of an act of personal connection with Tiranga, but also of an embodiment of our commitment to building nation,” said Randhawa, adding that the idea behind the “Har Ghar Tiranga” initiative aims to invoke the feeling of patriotism in the hearts of the people and promote awareness of the Indian national flag.

The brainchild of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Har Ghar Tiranga is a campaign supported by Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. The campaign aims to encourage people to take the Tiranga or tricolor home and hoist it to mark the 75th anniversary of India’s independence.

“As we mark Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, our nation is ready for Har Ghar Tiranga, a collective movement to celebrate our tricolor,” Randhawa said, adding that “I have changed the DP on my social media pages and I urge all of you to do the same”.

He informed that the government has amended the flag code of India to allow the tricolor to be displayed in the open air and on individual houses or buildings day and night, adding that the flag code of India had been amended earlier in December last year allowing the use of polyester except cotton, wool, silk and khadi for the manufacture of spun, handwoven flags hand and machine made.

“A citizen, a private organization or an educational institution can hoist or display the national flag every day and every occasion. There are no restrictions on when the flag is displayed,” the former lawmaker said.
