New Delhi: Former Deputy Prime Minister and veteran BJP leader LK Advani on Tuesday hoisted the national flag at his residence here to mark the 77th Independence Day.
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari also hoisted the Tiranga at his residence in Delhi and Gujarat Chief Minister Bhupendra Patel hoisted the Tricolour in Gujarat's Valsad. 
Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi hoisted the national flag at Red Fort in the national capital.
Upon his arrival at the Red Fort, PM Modi was received by Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, Raksha Rajya Mantri Ajay Bhatt, and Defence Secretary Giridhar Aramane.
The Defence Secretary introduced the General Officer Commanding (GoC), Delhi Area, Lieutenant General Dhiraj Seth to the Prime Minister.
The GoC Delhi Area conducted Narendra Modi to the Saluting Base where a combined Inter-Services and Delhi Police Guard presented a general salute to the Prime Minister. Thereafter, the Prime Minister inspected the Guard of Honour.
After hoisting the flag, PM Modi addressed the nation from the ramparts of the iconic monument.
PM Modi’s address from the ramparts marked his 10th Independence Day speech.
This year’s Independence Day will culminate the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ celebrations, which were launched by the Prime Minister from Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad, Gujarat on March 12, 2021, and will, once again, usher the country into ‘Amrit Kaal’ with renewed vigour to realise PM Modi’s dream of making India a developed country by 2047.
