In fact, the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign is being run across the country, the aim of which is to motivate people to hoist the national flag at their homes from 13 to 15 August. To which former Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray said that the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign is visible everywhere, but I have received some messages where a person is asking for a house to hoist the flag. Uddhav Thackeray said that a satirical picture has come. It shows some people who don’t have a home. Where do they plant the tricolor?
Taking a dig at the BJP, the Shiv Sena chief said that are we going again to a foreign regime, this is the question that needs to be asked today? There is no freedom to ask questions. Amrit Mahotsav should be like ‘amrit’ but not like ‘dead’ democracy.
Uddhav was addressing party workers virtually on the occasion of the 62nd anniversary of the magazine ‘Marmik’ founded by his father late Bal Thackeray. Meanwhile, he said that if there was no Shiv Sena, what would be the condition of Marathi in Maharashtra and what would be the condition of Hindutva in the country, it is a matter of thought.
Let us tell you that ‘Marmik’ was founded on August 13, 1960, when Bal Thackeray quit his job as a cartoonist in the Free Press Journal. Thackeray’s brother Shrikant was the co-founder of the magazine.
