Press Trust of India  |  Jammu 

Union minister led a 'Tiranga Yatra' -- a rally with the national flag -- organised by the youth wing as part of its 'Jodo Abhiyaan' (Unite Campaign) in Jammu today.

Singh flagged off the yatra at Pandit Prem Nath Dogra Chowk, along with state president Sat Sharma.

The rally, organised by the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), passed through major city thoroughfares before coming to an end at the office in Kachi Chawni.

Addressing the gathering before the yatra, Singh said "'Tiranga' (the Tricolour) will fly high in every situation and in every region of the country.

"(Bharatiya Jana Sangh founder) Shyama Prasad Mookerjee gave his life for a great cause and the 'Tiranga' will fly high in every situation, in every region," he said.

He said separatism was restricted to just two-and-a-half districts of Kashmir, and accused the opposition of spreading misinformation.

He said that had given a new direction to the Independence struggle in the form of the 'Quit Movement in 1942.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed for similar tireless work for the next five years to free from the clutches of corruption, illiteracy, casteism, communalism, terrorism, malnutrition and unemployment by chanting the mantra of 'Sankalp Se Sidhi' (Attainment through Resolve), he said.

state president Sharma thanked and BJYM leaders and activists for "contributing in making the atmosphere of the place filled with waves of patriotism".

He said that the was the only party in which worked with the sole aim of nationalism in letter and spirit.

"We all must take a pledge to work for the making of a 'New India' by 2022 when will be celebrating 75 years of freedom from the British rule," he said.
