occasion to mark 75 years of independence reduced to glorifying ‘sarvagyaani’: congress slams centre

New Delhi: The Congress on Saturday slammed the government for not holding special functions at Parliament’s historic Central Hall to mark the 75th year of Independence, and alleged the occasion has been reduced just to “glorifying the sarvagyaani”.

Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said there were special functions in Parliament’s historic Central Hall to mark the 25th, 50th and 60th anniversary of Independence.

“Sadly, nothing like that has been organised for the 75th anniversary, which has been reduced to an occasion to glorify the Sarvagyaani (one who knows it all),” he said in an apparent swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Hitting back at the Congress for criticising the government, and asked it to share pictures of its leaders hoisting ‘tiranga’ as part of an ongoing official campaign.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said that Ramesh finds fault in everything and said that the Congress should put out pictures of its leaders hoisting tiranga.

Patra said the government’s ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ initiative to mark the 75th anniversary was not a matter of politics and noted that BJP leaders have hoisted the national flag at their home as part of the exercise.

He said that Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi would have hoisted the flag as well and the Congress should share their pictures as the BJP members have done.

The Congress and the BJP have sparred over Centre’s initiatives marking the occasion of 75 years of Independence.

Earlier, PM Modi urged people to strengthen the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ movement by hoisting or displaying the national flag in their homes between August 13-15.

Following the appeal, Gandhi had hit out at the RSS, saying it “did not hoist the tricolour at its headquarters for 52 years”, and people coming from that organisation are now talking about the tricolour’s history and planning ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign.
