The Union Minister added  that Tiranga is a symbol of unity of 130 crore people of the country. Shri Anurag Thakur also urged people to hoist flags in their homes from 13th to 15th August. The  celebration of Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav with Jan Bhagidhari has now taken the shape of Jan Aandolan, the Minister said.

On the occasion Shri G.K Reddy  said that, millions of people have struggled and sacrificed their lives for the independence of the country.

Shri Govind Mohan also informed about the amendments done in the flag code. More than 20 crore flags have been made available during the Har Ghar Tiranga Campaign till now, he disclosed.

Badhe Chalo is a youth centric activation conceived by Ministry of Culture to instill a deeper sense of love for the country amongst young hearts. This Finale was a spectacular star-studded event with performances by Indian Idols Pawandeep Rajan and Arunita Kanjilal.

As the fervor of “Har Ghar Tiranga” is picking up across the country after the clarion call of  Prime Minister, Badhe Chalo added to the excitement with mass participation from Itanagar, Dimapur, Imphal in East to the Wagah Border, Surat, Goa, Daman in       West and from Srinagar and Jammu in North to Chennai and Bengaluru in South, and even the remotest places like Daman & Port Blair.

Badhe Chalo movement received encouraging response from the youth of our  nation in a way that resonates with them i.e. through song and dance. The Wagah Border event was a sight to behold and remember. In most  places, crowds joined in the Flash Dance making it even more spectacular. The Badhe Chalo Anthem has been appreciated by one and all, both young and old. This event surely rekindled the fire of patriotism in one and all, encouraging us to hoist a Tiranga in our homes from 13th to 15th August with swelling national pride in our hearts, and our heads  held high.
