Last month, Modi had asked the citizens of the country to hoist the Tricolour at their houses between August 13 and 15. This has boosted sales of national flags across India.

The campaign that kicked off on Saturday showed several Union ministers from Shah to Anurag Thakur to Piyush Goyal waving the national flag. Many Bollywood celebrities also came forward to hoist the Tricolour at their residences, including Aamir Khan and Shah Rukh Khan.

Modi has been sharing strings of videos and photos on Twitter starting Tuesday of people celebrating the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign from Arunachal Pradesh to Jammu and Kashmir. On Saturday, he said that he was “overjoyed and proud” of the “amazing response” to the movement across the country.
