PM aims for Guinness record with ‘HAR GHAR TIRANGA’
Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s brainchild theme of ‘Har Ghar Tiranga, Har Man Tiranga’ aims to make it to the Guiness Book of World Records for the sheer volume of public participation in any such initiative undertaken anywhere on the globe while also giving an impetus to the spirit of nationalism in India.
A person in the know said, “In Mumbai city alone the civic corporation, Khadi Gram Udyog Bhandar, and scores of NGOs and the private sector took it upon themselves to distribute the national flag across the city. Even the GPO made available the national flag upon the payment of Rs 25 but was out of stock for the last two days. On Sunday, Mumbai city’s Gateway of India monument recorded a never-before-seen multitude of visitors.” BMC Administrator Iqbal Singh Chahal took the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga, Har Man Tiranga’ to heart and qualified as the only civic corporation to procure and distribute 50 lakh national flags at a cost of over Rs 8 crore, across city homes to ensure massive public participation in the Union Government program to celebrate the diamond jubilee, 75th year anniversary of Indian Independence.
Bike Tiranga rallies are the special themed flavour throughout Maharashtra, with a special focus and emphasis on tribal and rural regions by CM Eknath Shinde led government. Many temples and religious institutions of other faiths, particularly over 90 per cent of Jain temples across India, proudly hoisted the national flag atop their religious structures.
