“We will also try to install a flag in everyone’s house from the 13th to the 15th of August, and we have already received the flags stock. We have established sale counters at 4 locations where flags will be sold at Rs 25 for people who want to hoist the flag themself at their houses. The flags will be available at the MLA office, Mandal office, Yuva Morcha office at Varunapuri and New Vaddem. We also have three ward leaders in every ward who will try to reach out to all the houses and install flags. We will also have a bike rally with the National flag on the 13th of August , Mashaal Yatra on the 14th from Hutatma Chowk to the Railway station and finally, all our Karyakartas will visit the houses with flags and carry programs on the 15th of August besides the main flag hoisting organised by Dy Collector, Flag hoisting by MMC and flag hoisting at Railway station Vasco ” said Naik
Vasco MLA Krishna Salkar said that Vasco would receive maximum participation from the people for the one of its kind ” Har Ghar Tiranga” initiative
“The people must have pride in hoisting the National flag at their homes when the BJP Government had relaxed the flag code. We have been given this golden opportunity, and we have to make the maximum benefit, and We request the people to have the flag hoisted by the children in the house and also click a selfie if possible because it will be the same child who will get the great sense of pride and patriotism after 25 years when we celebrate 100 years of Independence ” said Salkar
Salkar also requested people not to use plastic flags but instead buy the flags available at the sale counters
“We have seen several times that some people install flags on Independence day, but the next day it is found on the ground, and we must take care that this does not happen. We must take care of the flag when we hoist it and after we remove the flag post-independence day”, said Salkar.
BJP State executive member Jayant Jadhav said that the flag code had been relaxed and flags need to be hoisted in a straight way
“We can keep the flag from the 13th to the 15th of August, and we must use cotton or khadi flag only, but no one must use a plastic flag because we will be forced to dispose of a plastic flag. Besides the four sale counters, the flags will also be available at Ravindra Bhavan, the collector’s office, the Mamlatdar office, and the Post office. We will install around 4000 flags at various places in Vasco.” Said Jadhav.
