Vice President and Rajya Sabha Chairman Venkaiah Naidu flagged off the ‘Tiranga bike rally’ from the Red Fort for the MPs of all parties on Wednesday morning. The rally, organized by Culture Ministry, culminated at Vijay Chowk near Parliament.
Several MPs, including central ministers and young parliamentarians, took part in the rally in Delhi that originated from the historic Red Fort to pay tribute to the freedom fighters as part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. Tricolors in the streets and MPs on wheels, the event sought to heighten the sense of patriotism among citizens while sending out a social message.
The ‘Har Ghar Tiranga‘ bike rally came a day after the Ministry of Culture hosted a mega ‘Tiranga Utsav’ event on Tuesday to mark the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav. Union Home Minister Amit Shah during the ‘Tiranga Utsav’ appealed to the citizens to participate in the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign with great enthusiasm to tell the world that India has “risen from slumber” and swiftly moving forward under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi while being on course to become a “great” power.
At the meeting, BJP president J P Nadda outlined a host of exercises for the party members to undertake during a week-long programme starting from August 9 in the run up to August 15, the 75th anniversary of India’s Independence. Nadda asked party members to take out ‘Prabhat pheri’ (morning procession) between 9 am and 11 am to publicize the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign while its youth wing would carry out “Tiranga yatra” on bikes across the country, Joshi said.
Under the campaign, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has urged everyone to hoist or display the national flag at their house between August 13 and 15. Party members will also undertake ‘Prabhat pheri’ down to the booth level between August 11 and 13, playing ‘Raghupati raghav raja Ram’, Mahatma Gandhi’s favourite devotional song, or India’s national song ‘Vande Mataram, he said.
Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of independence and the glorious history of its people, culture, and achievements.
