The Indian National Flag was hoisted on Thursday at Mount Koubru in Kangpokpi district, Manipur as a part of the Har Ghar Tiranga Campaign which is celebrated under the ‘Azadi KaAmrit Mahotsav’ celebrating the 75 glorious and historic years of India’s Independence.
The event was organised by the district administration Kangpokpi in collaboration with the NehruYuva Kendra Kangpokpi and Kangpokpi Forest Division.
The team of various departments led by deputy commissioner Zuringla Kengoo climbed the mountain early Thursday at the Kanglatongbi Kangpokpi Reserved Forest (KKRF).
The deputy commissioner said the idea behind hoisting the Indian National Flag atop Mount Koubru is celebration of the spirit of freedom and to be grateful to our motherland. She called upon the citizens to participate in the celebration of Independence Week from August 11 to 17.
For the event, the divisional forest officer Kangpokpi issued necessary guidelines which included not littering the mountain, harming plants/animals and disturbing the surroundings at the area.
Meanwhile, the Indian national flags were hoisted at various government department offices and schools in the district.
Posters issued by the Directorate of Information and Public Relations in connection with the celebration of Har Ghar Tiranga Campaign were displayed at different locations within the district. (DIO-IPR)
