PM Narendra Modi was seen sporting a white turban with several tricolour Indian flag stripes today as he delivered the customary Independence Day speech to the nation from the Red Fort in Delhi. He delivered his speech for the tenth time in a row from the famous heritage building while wearing a white kurta-pyjama and a navy blue waistcoat, with the turban standing out.

Since 2014, the Prime Minister has made it a custom to wear a vibrant turban for Independence Day and Republic Day attire. He wore a saffron hat with crimson designs and a protracted pink trail the previous year.

With the PM in lead of the celebrations, India is celebrating its 75th anniversary of independence today. From the ramparts of the recognisable Red Fort, he has raised the national flag and is addressing the country.

In order to make the relationship with the national flag more personal rather than just official or institutional, the government is supporting the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign, which has been strongly included in this year’s special events. Ministers and BJP leaders have also embarked on a number of “Tiranga Yatras” around the nation.

Today, the Indian flag was widely displayed on homes, apartment buildings, workplaces, commercial buildings, public parks, and even automobiles in the capital.

The Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, a massive programme that began in March 2021, is commemorating India’s 75th anniversary of independence.

In a first, the administration has also permitted citizens to fly the flag for three days inside their residences. For the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign, the flag laws needed to be modified.
