The ‘Prabhat Pheri’ began from Janpath Radial and culminated at the National War Memorial at India Gate to celebrate the campaign under ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ to mark 75 years of India’s independence.
“Joined Union Ministers @PiyushGoyal @smritiirani & @M_Lekhi in a ‘Prabhat Pheri’ by over 10000 school children as part of #HarGharTiranga Abhiyan. Children’s enthusiasm, energy and their love for Tiranga was simply infectious. The fervor indeed is INDIA! #AzadiKaAmritMahotsav ,” the LG said in a tweet.
The LG also posted pictures of the ‘pheri’ where children along with Union ministers and other officials were seen carrying the national flag.
“Boundless Energy, Infectious Enthusiasm, Tricolour in Hand & India in Heart! As the children walked from CP to the War Memorial at India Gate,” the LG said in another tweet.
Before the beginning of the event, LG said children are the bright future of India who are witnessing the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga Campaign’.
‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ is a festival of our culture, heritage and achievement earned during the 75 years of independent India, he said.
Saxena said Har Ghar Tiranga is a part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav in which citizens will celebrate it by hoisting it atop their house.
“The tricolor is the symbol of our freedom of struggle and sacrifice of our freedom fighters who gave their supreme sacrifice for the future of our nation,” Saxena was quoted as saying.
I urged the children to carry the tricolor in the Prabhat Pheri and take it home to be hoisted as part of the campaign, the statement added.
