Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his monthly radio programme ‘Mann ki Baat' addressed the audience to support the Har Ghar Tiranga initiative by hoisting or displaying the national flag in their homes, and by using the tricolour as social media display pictures. The government has introduced the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign as a part of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav.
Amit Shah, the Union home minister, addressed a gathering during the 'Tiranga Utsav' event in New Delhi to commemorate Pingali Venkayya, the designer of the Indian national flag. He claimed that a "Naya Bharat" is being built under PM Narendra Modi's leadership, since 2014.
The participative nature of this initiative leads to more people participating in the event. Amit Shah pleaded with people to participate in the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign with more enthusiasm and show the world that India has "risen from slumber" and is on the way to becoming a "great" power.
"Since 2014, the stature of India has grown abroad, and the respect for the Indian flag has increased globally since. On any problem that arises in the world, until PM Modi has made his statement, the world does not decide its thoughts on it," says Amit Shah.
