Hyderabad : With the Narendra Modi government all set to launch the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign under the aegis of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, the TRS government in the state on Saturday unveiled its own “Swatantra Bharata Vajrotsava Dwi Saptaham”.
While the Modi government has said that the aim of the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ is to encourage people to bring the Tricolour home and to hoist it too, the TRS government said that the Swatantra Bharata Vajrotsava Dwi Saptaham is a celebration of the 75th year of India’s Independence.
The 75th Independence Day celebrations would be held in a grand manner in the State for a fortnight, starting a week before after August 15.
