Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hoisted the 115 feet high tricolor in his constituency New Delhi on Sunday on the occasion of 75th Independence Day. During this, referring to Anna Hazare, Kejriwal said that while hoisting the flag, I remembered the days of Anna movement, when Anna used to say Bharat Mata ki Jai by hoisting the tricolor at Ramlila Maidan, then the person sitting in front of the TV in every house also. Bharat Mata ki Jai used to be chanted.
Kejriwal said that this immortal tricolor of ours is carrying the hopes and dreams of all of us countrymen. Whenever we see the tricolor, something happens in our heart. Patriotism gives goosebumps. The Chief Minister said that from today 5 such huge tricolors have been dedicated to the people in Delhi. Soon 500 such tricolors will be installed all over Delhi so that whenever you come out of the house, you must see this tricolor flag of yours. Our target is to install 500 such national flags across Delhi by Republic Day. This will create a feeling of patriotism among the people.
