Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav: PM asks masses to hoist Tiranga in homes

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked masses to hoist or display 'Tiranga', the tricolour national flag of India, at their homes as part of the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign from August 13 and 15. This is in line with the 76th Independence day celebrations.

He also asked people to feature the national flag as their social media profile pictures from August 2 to 15 since August 2 is the birth anniversary of Pingali Venkayya, who had designed the flag.

He claimed on Sunday that 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' (AKAM) is turning into a mass movement.

In his Mann Ki Baat radio broadcast, Modi said, "Let us further this movement by hoisting the National Flag at our homes."

He said that he was happy that the Mahotsav is taking the form of a mass movement, with people from all walks of life and from every section of society participating in different programmes across the country.

"When India completes 75 years of its Independence, all of us are going to witness a glorious and historic moment," he said.

Later in the podcast, he said that India is becoming a powerhouse in the export of toys. Import of toys to India has gone down by 70 per cent while their export from India has risen to about Rs 2,600 crore from earlier Rs 300-400 crore, he said.

He said, "Indian manufacturers are now making toys based on Indian mythology, history and culture. Toy clusters that are there everywhere in the country, small entrepreneurs who make toys, are getting a lot of benefit from it. The toys made by these small entrepreneurs are now going around the world."
