It’s almost a month away, but the government is already gearing for the big day. To mark the 70th Independence Day, the government has asked everyone to post a selfie with a Tricolour. This, a week-long celebration for common citizens in the Rajpath lawns, and much more is in the works as the Narendra Modi government is planning what it calls a momentous celebration around the 70th Independence Day this August 15.

Letters have already gone out to all ministers from the Press Information Bureau on the directions of information and broadcasting minister M Venkaiah Naidu, asking them to write special features on the importance of the 70th Independence Day. The thrust this time, an official said, is on the theme of the “overall progress made by the nation after Independence, but with a special focus on what has been achieved in the last three years” under the leadership of Modi. “The PM has stressed on the concept of a New India. The same will be articulated in the government’s campaign too, as to stress on what lies ahead for the country after 70 years of independence,” an official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

There will be ‘Twitter Polls’ and quizzes run by the government on social media on various facets of Independence. People will be invited to post their selfies with the tricolour on social media and government handles will be re-tweeting and liking such posts. The week-long celebration will be held in the Rajpath lawns between Mansingh Road and Janpath from August 12 to 18 in conjunction with the Independence Day function at the Red Fort.
