ITANAGAR, Aug 05: The ongoing year-long celebration of 75th year of India’s independence, christened as Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, would be culminated by hoisting national flag in every house, preparations are in full swing to procure and distribute tri-colours to achieve the goal.
“Our Tiranga has always been a source of inspiration for us to feel proud. It is a symbol of national spirit to keep the country united. To celebrate ‘my flag’…‘my pride’ as part of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav recently handed over 7,000 small flags, of total 25,000 procured from Delhi, to DDSE Koing Umbom Singpho for free distribution among students of all schools of Namsai district,”. Lawmaker Chau Zingnu Namchoom told this daily on Friday.
“Let us join in ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign to honour all freedom fighters who sacrificed everything to gain independence of India from the British colonialism,” he added.
After launching ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign’ at BJP HQs here on Thursday, state BJP president-cum-MLA Biyuram Wahge had told party leaders and karyakartas present that the initiative aims at invoking the feeling of patriotism and to remember the sacrifices made by freedom fighters for India’s independence. The party will ensure that the national flag reaches every household in all districts, blocks, villages and booths for hoisting in all homes, he had added.
Arunachalees reflect their patriotic spirit by celebrating Independence Day and Republic Day enthusiastically by hoisting tri-colour in almost every house across the state, including remote and inaccessible ones. Every newspaper house receives celebration news in such great number making it difficult to give coverage.
Such spirit was noticed on 03.02.22 when Chief Minister Pema Khandu after hoisting a 104-feet monumental national flag at Ngangpa Natme (Buddha Park) overlooking pilgrim town of Tawang bordering China had said “Proud to dedicate to patriotic people of Arunachal. This is the second highest monumental national flag located at an altitude of 10,000 feet.”
He had congratulated the Army, the Sashastra Seema Bal, Indo-Tibetan Border Police, Tawang district administration and MLA Tsering Tashi for the feat.
