While celebrating the elixir of Indian Independence, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party leaders in the state are running advertisements using the money collected from citizens’ taxes. But Gopal Tiwari, the state spokesperson of the Congress and the founder president of the Rajiv Gandhi Memorial Committee, demanded that in the government advertisements, photographs of freedom fighters, prominent freedom fighters including Mahatma Gandhi, as well as the code of the national tricolor flag, the concept of the three colors and the constitution should be published to glorify them.
City District Congress Vice President Subhash Thorve, Founder President of ‘Gandhi Jaanuyat’ Sanket Munot, Brother Shedge, Sanjay Mankar, Sanjay Abhang, Mahesh Ambike, Shankar Shirke, Ashok Kale were present on this occasion.
Gopal Tiwari said that while implementing the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign, it is necessary for the rulers to understand the meaning of the tricolor flag. The government policy was that the tricolor should be of khadi and indigenous cloth. But the Modi government has decided to buy polyester flags from China. It would have been possible for the central government to manufacture tricolor flags domestically from indigenous cloth as well. The time would not have come for the administration to waste government money and buy inferior flags.
