The national flag will be hoisted in 20 lakh homes in Uttarakhand from August 13 to 15 as part of the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign launched by the Central government under the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. Chief minister Pushkar Singh Dhami attended a video conference chaired by Union Home minister Amit Shah regarding the campaign on Sunday. Shah said that public participation is most important in the campaign for which widespread publicity should be undertaken to motivate citizens, especially the youth.

It was stated in the meeting that some amendments have been made in the flag code to enable enthusiastic participation of the citizens. The States will be informed in detail about this.

After the video conference, Dhami directed officials to accord top priority to preparations for the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign. He said that Uttarakhand will also involve its gallantry award winners in the campaign which will see the national flag being put up in 20 lakh homes by the people themselves. He stressed on elaborate publicity for this purpose especially on social media. Dhami directed officials to prepare a detailed outline for the campaign and begin preparations without delay. Freedom fighters, their family members, voluntary organisations and intelligentsia should also be linked to the programme, he said.
