*Rashtriya Yuva Shakti President Uttam Yadav with his friend/supporter inspecting the road of Tricolor Flags on the 73rd Independence Day on August 15, 2020.
Want to move along the main road of tricolour flags? Just walk into Jharkhand capital city centre. All you need to do is turn your eyes left, right, centre and forward and explore national flags, each of the same size and height, unfurling along the middle of four lanes at Shahid Chowk, Param Vir Albert Ekka Chowk and Sarjana Chowk.
The first city centre with over a km long road with national flags flying in the sky. As many as over six dozens of tricolour flags stood tall along these roads on the Independent day today.
As you walk around Albert Ekka chowk, you will actually feel that you are in a space of national flags of India. Delhi has Red Fort where Prime Minister Narendra Modi unfurled the tricolour. So did Jharkhand Governor Draupadi Murmu and Chief Minister Hemant Soren in Dumka and Ranchi respectively.
But the images shown here are of single national flag as per the tradition. And the images of Ranchi city centre show 74 tricolour flags. The visuals are real images. Gimmicks take a back seat here. This no Rhea or Mumbai Ka Hawa Bazi.
Uttam Yadav, son of Jharkhand’s soil, who is President of Rashtriya Yuva Shakti, a true nationalist youth leader, with his supporters had decked up these chowks with national flags and got them unfurled this morning at a go. Why?
If Yadav and his friends and supporters are to be believed, they celebrated the 73rd Independence Day by saluting and honouring 20 martyrs including Jharkhand based soldiers such as Jai Prakash Oraon who had sacrificed their lives in confrontation with China in Ladakh on June 15-16 night.
“We are giving a standing ovation to Uttam and his Rashtriya Yuva Shakti members for their historic nationalist action”, claps Manoj Prasad, Editor,www.jharkhandstatenews.com.
Incidentally, Uttam and his team had recently planted 20 trees in the name of each of these martyrs inside Football ground of Jharkhand Sports Authority at Morahabadi Maidan in Ranchi as well.
