Taking this forward, the Modi government is bringing a unique opportunity for Twitter users to become stars this Independence Day.Users can post selfies with the tricolour around this Independence Day and government handles will retweet and like such posts.
The Narendra Modi government plans a momentous celebration this Independence Day. A week-long celebration for common citizens will be organised in the Rajpath lawnsbetween Mansingh Road and Janpath from August 12 to 18. These celebrations are likely to be for nine hours each day in the evenings.
According to a government official, the theme this time is ‘overall progress made by the nation after Independence, but with a special focus on what has been achieved in the last three years’ under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi.
‘Twitter Polls’ and quizzes will be run by the government on social media on various facets of Independence. The idea behind this year’s celebration is to ‘create patriotic mood, ensure wider participation of the general public and to promote the cuisine & rich cultural diversity of our country.’
Five main areas will be built in the lawns — cultural and musical areas, state theme pavilions, a food court, handicraft areas and facilities for interactive activities. A central area in the south lawns on Rajpath will be marked for cultural activities with a main stage area where military bands will play along with cultural performances.
The BJP will also be running a campaign with central ministers. These ministers will visit various spots in the country closely related to the Independence movement like the Cellular Jail in Port Blair and Jallianwala Bagh. The celebrations this year will truly be unique. The government is encouraging people to revel in the biggest festival of Indian democracy.
