Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday put ‘tiranga’ as the display picture of his social media accounts and urged people to do the same as part of a collective movement to celebrate the Tricolour.
In his Mann ki Baat radio broadcast on Sunday, Modi had said the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ is turning into a mass movement and urged people to put ‘Tiranga’ as the profile picture of their social media accounts between August 2 and 15.
It is a special 2nd August today! At a time when we are marking Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, our nation is all set for Har Ghar Tiranga, a collective movement to celebrate our Tricolour. I have changed the DP on my social media pages and urge you all to do the same,” he said in a tweet this morning.
Modi also paid homage to the Pingali Venkayya, who had designed the flag, on his birth anniversary.
