INDIA: This year, India will commemorate its 75th year of Independence. The central government has organised the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign across the country under the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’. The Prime Minister of India encouraged everyone to celebrate this occurrence extensively by hoisting the Tricolour atop every house from 13 to August 15.
The opposition criticised the whole campaign proposal, holding a boycott by doing Tiranga bike rally in Delhi. BJP spokesman Sambit Patra expressed his dejection towards the action and said, ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ is not a political drive-in lieu; it is a government programme.
He did not identify any particular party but said, “Politics is happening on this as well; many statements are coming on this. BJP would like to request parties without naming them only with folded hands. Tricolour belongs to everyone, and if all MPs participate in it, this animosity.”
During a press conference, the saffron party leader said, “There are no hard feelings for anyone, no accusations and no fight. I want to keep this topic with love because everyone has equal rights on the national flag. We are now close to celebrating August 15, and the country has a festive atmosphere. August 15 comes every year, but this time, it is coming with double enthusiasm because the country is completing 75 years of its Independence.”
“Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that it pains our hearts if some political comments are countered upon the celebrations related to the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav and the celebrations that are organised across the country around the 75th Independence Day,” according to the party’s philosophy.
Concluding his statement, Patra requested every other opposition party to keep politics away from national drives.
