‘Independence Week’ to instill patriotism

The state government is making elaborate efforts to celebrate the national festival for the entire week. Under the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, people are already being encouraged to display the Tricolour inside their homes.

Going a step further, the state administration has planned to create a ‘week of nationalist fervour’ to mark the occasion. Under this, special initiatives have been planned to unite people & promote their participation in Independence awareness programs. The messages will be relayed via social media, radio and television to maximize their participation.

A special ‘Tiranga selfie’ initiative has also been planned under which people will be encouraged to click selfies. The best selfie will also be rewarded later.
