Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Noting that Indore takes up challenges as opportunities, water resources minister Tulsiram Silawat here on Sunday said that the city will try to be number one even in hoisting of Tricolour.
“Indore is No 1 not only in cleanliness but in many other areas too. It is because of the nature of people in the city who want to be No 1 in the country in all good things. As hoisting Tricolour will reflect our patriotism, residents of Indore are not going to leave this opportunity. They are going to be No 1 in the country in hoisting the national flag,” Silawat said while addressing a programme organised for appealing to schools, colleges, sports and other organisations for hoisting Tricolour as part of Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan.

Addressing the meeting, Silawat said that this campaign should be made a mass movement. “This is a campaign of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. It is our utmost duty that we should play an active part in this campaign. Let’s hoist the Tricolour in every house,” he added.
Hardia, Randive, Sharma also addressed the meeting.
