As a part of the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign, the BBMP will be selling flags for ₹25.
Story so far: The BBMP has already received 2 lakh of our national flags. They are expected to receive more over the next few days. Tasked with distribution, the BBMP will be distributing the flags to residents and shop owners in person and will also be selling them for ₹25 per flag.
- The goal of this campaign is to inculcate a more personal relationship with the national flag. Something that has largely been “more formal and institutional”.
- Last week, Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai even assured our Home Minister Amit Shah that Karnataka would hoist one crore flags by the 15th of August.
Har Ghar Tiranga: This is the union government’s initiative that aims to hoist a total of 20 crore flags across the country. The goal is to have them up from 13 August to the 15th to mark our 75th year of independence.
