Nagpur: The Additional District Magistrate Ravindra Bhusari on Thursday released “Kara Sanman Tirangyacha” (Respect Tricolour) awareness campaign poster brought out jointly by District Information Office and Nag Swaraj Foundation on the auspices of Kamyaab Foundation. “Respecting the National Flag (Tricolour) is duty of all the Indians. Children as well as youths, school students and citizens should respect the Tricolour,” exhorted Kumbhare on the occasion.
Kamyaab Foundation, since the past seven years, is running “Kara Sanman Tirangyacha” awareness campaign in city. Through this campaign, the organization lifts torn, soiled paper and plastic pieces of National Flag thrown by irresponsible elements. Small kids and even elders proudly roam with the Tricolour in their hands particularly on January 26 and August 15. But the same Tricolour is thrown or dumped on roads and at other objectionable places showing disregard to the National Flag.
The dumped pieces of Tricolour are lifted by the volunteers of Kamyaab Foundation during “Kara Sanman Tirangyacha” awareness campaign and respectfully deposited at a decided place. The campaign got off to a start today and will continue till January 27. During the campaign, street plays will be staged, stickers, posters will be distributed in schools and colleges.
Others who were present on the occasion include District Information Officer Anil Thakre, President of Kamyaab Foundation Hitesh Dorlikar, Harsha Dorlikar, Yadnesh Kaple, Neha Shinde, Kartik Rathi, Prakash Mohpekar and youths in large number.
Ban on plastic flags:
Giving a ruling on a Public Interest Litigation (PIL), the Nagpur Bench of Bombay High Court has banned use of plastic National Flag. Therefore, people at large have been appealed to desist themselves from using plastic Tricolour during Republic Day (January 26) celebration.
