In a bid to emphasize patriotism and educate the new generations about freedom fighters, their sacrifices and the fruits of the freedom struggle being enjoyed by the country, the State government has decided to conduct "Swathantra Bharatha Vajrotsavalu" from August 8 to 22 across the State.
As part of the preparations, Chief Secretary Somesh Kumar held a meeting with senior officials at BRKR Bhavan on Saturday and asked the officials to work in close coordination in order to ensure that the program was held successfully.
Kumar said that the high-level Vajrotsava Committee had already chalked out a detailed program. The inaugural session would be held on August 8, and would be attended by ministers, MLAs and other public representatives. And special programs on national integration would follow across the State.
The CS added that one crore flags had already been readied for distribution to all households in the State, and directed the officials to ensure that the flags were distributed in all villages, mandals and municipalities.
Films on national integration and patriotism will be shown free of cost to school children in all cinemas during this period.
