The Chief Minister reminded that, at the initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the 75th anniversary of the country’s independence is being celebrated as Amrit Mahotsav. This had created enthusiasm among the countrymen. The sense of duty towards the country has been strengthened among the youth.

Wide publicity ought to be given to ensure public participation at such a large level including on social media. All government websites and social media handles ought to be used for publicity and motivating the public. The Chief Minister gave a detailed outline of the Tricolour campaign in the state and directed that preparations for this be started immediately. All the departments ought to work together.
