Har Ghar Tiranga
Prime Minister Narendra Modi initiated the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' movement under Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to encourage the people of the country to bring the Tiranga to their home and hoist it to mark India’s 76 years of independence. As per the Prime Minister, the relationship of the people of the country with the tricolor has always been more formal and institutional than personal.
