Why do people see politics in the tricolor in every house? BJP did not appeal, PM Modi did: Union Minister Dharmendra Pradhan
Pradhan further said that the Prime Minister only wants people to celebrate 75 years of independence with the same enthusiasm as other festivals. “We expect every Indian household to hoist the tricolor to celebrate 75 years of India’s independence. What’s wrong with that?” He said while talking to Navika Kumar of Times Now.
Notably, Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged people to hoist the tricolor above their homes for three days next month from August 13 to 15 as part of the ‘Har Tiranga Abhiyan’ under the ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’. An official statement said that over 100 crore people are expected to participate in the campaign.

However, a controversy broke out after the campaign was announced. Opposition leaders criticized the movement saying that ‘there is no need to give certificates to all those born in this country’. Congress leader Syed Naseer Hussain said, “Everyone in the country loves and supports the country. We don’t necessarily need to show it by hoisting the tricolor. No one has called them nationalism or nationalism in this country. The mandate of the certificate has not been given.” He said that every citizen of India is a patriot and there is no need to ask people to show patriotism.
