Hyderabad: Telangana Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan inaugurated a photo exhibition on Telugu freedom fighters, as part of the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign, at the Salarajung Museum here on 8 August. The Governor exhorted the people of Telangana to hoist the national flag atop their houses from 13 to 15 August as part of the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign, an initiative launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
"We must celebrate the 75 years of Independence with great pride, honour, and happiness. Ours is the largest democracy in the world and we must take pride in it," said the Governor. "Reminiscing the freedom struggle and the freedom fighters is the need of the hour. I am requesting youngsters to visit this exhibition and get motivated and re-dedicate themselves to the service of the nation," she added.
Checking out the photo panels on the evolution of the Tricolour, the Governor remarked that the 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign would rekindle the connection with the national flag which is the foundation of our common identity as Indians. Appreciating the efforts of the Central Bureau of Communication of the ministry of information and broadcasting in putting together the exhibition on prominent Telugu freedom fighters, she said it would teach the next generation about the sacrifices made by our forefathers for the freedom they enjoy today.
Tricolour in every home
To enable wider participation of citizens, the landmark step of amending the Flag Code of the country was carried out on 20 July 2022 to allow the national flag of India to be flown during the day and night. Addressing the nation during the 91st edition of 'Mann Ki Baat', Prime Minister Narendra Modi called upon all citizens to hoist the national flag from their homes and change their display pictures on social media to the image of the 'Tiranga'.
The campaign was launched on 2 August, which happens to be the birth anniversary of Pingali Venkayya, the designer of the Indian national flag, in the national capital.
