Many dignitaries and students created a Guinness World Record on Saturday by forming the world’s largest human formation of a waving national flag in Chandigarh. The record was achieved by Chandigarh University and NID Foundation reportedly with the participation of 5,885 people.

BJP leaders including Union ministers participated in ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign across the country as the three-day exercise began on Saturday to mark India’s 75th year of independence. ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ is being run ahead of August 15th when the nation will celebrate its 75th Independence Day. It follows an emotional appeal by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on July 22 last month. The idea behind the campaign is to connect with the masses and infuse a sense of nationalism and patriotism. In a series of tweets last month, PM Modi had urged everyone to hoist the national flag from their homes.

Har Ghar Tiranga: Public response to ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign indicates revival of collective conscience, says PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said public response to his government's 'Har Ghar Tiranga' campaign is an indication of the revival of the country's collective conscience and its strength, which even “big socialists and experts of social science” cannot imagine. Addressing the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort on the 76th Independence Day, he said the revival of this collective conscience has given “a new strength” to the country. “In the last few days, we saw and experienced a new force that was the renaissance of collective conscience. Till August 10, people perhaps would not even be knowing that such kind of strength exists in the country,” the prime minister said. “The way the country has been on a tiranga yatra with tricolour in hands for the last three days, even big socialists and experts of social science perhaps can not imagine the kind of strength that my country has. But the tricolour flag showed it, he said. (PTI)
