He said that SHGs, Yuvak Mandals, Mahila Mandals and other NGOs should be involved in a big way. He said that various cultural, social and religious organizations must also be involved. He said that effective mechanism must be evolved to ensure that flags were available with the Deputy Commissioners so that the same could be further distributed in the respective districts.
Chief Minister said, the national flag must appear on the homepage of all state government websites from 22 July, while citizens should also be encouraged to display the tricolour on their Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media accounts. He also urged the people to take a selfie with the tricolour. He said that children, elderly, youth and teenagers together should be encouraged sing praise to Mother India and take out ‘Prabhat Pheris’ in villages with the tricolour in hand to infuse patriotism among the masses.
Jai Ram Thakur said that the Information and Public Relations Department should launch a campaign to promote this event through advertisements so as to make this event a people’s movement.
