August 13, 2022

Good enthusiasm to buy flags; many people buy two

By M.T. Yogesh Kumar

Mysore/Mysuru: In a bid to ensure the success of the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign marking the 75th year of Independence, the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) has launched an initiative for selling at least 1.5 lakh Tricolour flags.

Staff at all nine Zonal Offices have been assigned the task of selling flags to households. Each flag is priced at Rs.25 and a receipt is issued for every purchase.

While the big zonal offices have been given the task of selling 30,000 flags, the smaller ones have been set at a target of 15,000. The initiative launched a couple of days ago has drawn good public response, with 200 to 300 flags getting sold within minutes in some of the MCC wards.

MCC Zone-3 Zonal Commissioner B.M. Prakash said that his zone was given 30,000 flags for selling. Pointing out that 8 MCC wards covering localities such as Sharadadevinagar, Kuvempunagar, Bogadi, Dattagalli, Ramakrishnanagar, T.K. Layout etc., come under Zone-3, he said that all the 30,000 flags were sold in just 2 days. Along with the drive, an awareness on the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign too was held, he added.

MCC Additional Commissioner Roopa said that as per the Government order, on Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, each flag is sold at Rs. 25. Pointing out that 1.5 lakh flags that were given by the district administration has been distributed among all nine Zonal offices, she said that the MCC has printed receipt books which are used for issuing receipts to the people upon flag purchase.

    Go on wave the tricoloured flag. It is a symbol of what is wrong in India today: corruption and moral degradation every every where! Look at the quality of people living in India today! Do you think that your father of the nation-Gandhiji will be proud of you about what you have become today?
