The Force has also released a special patriotic song on the theme “Har Ghar Tiranga", composed by ITBP jawan Arjun Kheriyal. He dedicated the song to all the brave soldier of the nation who are performing their duties with devotion.

The song titled- Jai Hind, Jai Hind, motivates and urges the Indian citizens to hoist the national flag at their homes during the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign from August 13 to 15, 2022. The ITBP soldiers were seen with the National Flag on many top high-altitude borders including Ladakh and Uttarakhand.

Home Minister Amit Shah, BJP National President JP Nadda and other senior party leaders also hoisted the Tricolor at various places across the country to kick start the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign today.

The central government said that there is no restriction on the timing of flag display, a citizen, a private organization or an educational institute can hoist the National flag on all days or occasions. Earlier, the Indian citizens were not allowed to hoist the tricolor on all days, except occasions.

The program envisages inspiring Indians everywhere to hoist the national flag at their homes. The aim of the program is to make the relationship with the national flag a more personal one rather than just keeping it formal or institutional.
