The preparations for the 75th Independence Day celebrations are on in full swing, but the ambitious Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, part of the Centre’s Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, has upset many citizens. Mumbaikars we spoke to are furious that the flags being distributed by the BMC for the campaign are defective. The display of a damaged or dishevelled flag is in violation of the Flag Code of India. Meanwhile, trade unions are disappointed that flags for the campaign will be purchased by deducting Rs 38 from railway employees’ salaries.
