Pune, 13th August 2022 : Stressing that patriotism was the only way to keep India united, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai said over 40 crore houses have hoisted the tricolor on a clarion call given by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.


Bommai launched the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign at the Amanora Township in Hadapsar area in Pune in presence of Aniruddha Deshpande, Managing Director, City Corporation Limited (CCL), C.T Ravi, Member of Karnataka Legislative Assembly, Aditya Deshpande and Vivek Kulkarni from CCL.


“We have to be proud of our nation, nation comes first and patriotism is the only way to keep the nation united and to take it forward. We are lucky to have a visionary leader in Narendra Modi ji, on his call today more than 40 crores houses have been now hosting the national flag,” Bommai said.


Bommai also believes that the way India fought the COVID-19 crisis was a remarkable achievement.


“The way India fought back COVID is a remarkable achievement in the recent past. Vaccinating 130 crores of people, almost 200 crores vaccinations have been administered already,” quipped Bommai.


“To keep India at the forefront, we are celebrating 75 years of independence – ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’ – this will be the foundation to prepare ourselves to see that India enters into ‘Amrutkal’ in next 25 years after 2047 where we are going to celebrate 100 years of independence,” he added.
