Kejriwal further said the AAP government will distribute “25 lakh flags” across the city, and the national flag will also be given to government schools so that students can take them home. "The country is celebrating the 75th anniversary of Independence. People are happy and every government is celebrating the occasion," he said.

'Har Ghar Tiranga, Har Haath Tiranga' and other events are being held to celebrate the occasion. Today, I want to appeal to the people of the country that they sing the national anthem at 5 pm (on August 14)," he said during an online briefing.
