As the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign was launched on Saturday, the tricolour was everywhere across Hubballi and Dharwad, with various organisations, institutions, and political parties taking turns to take out a ‘tiranga yatra’, apart from hoisting the national flag atop their houses, offices, and even various establishments.

Hoisting the tricolour atop their houses or a place of convenience, thousands of people posted photographs on social media platforms.

In Hubballi and Dharwad, motorcycle rallies and foot marches were seen despite the rains. Slogans of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ , ‘Jai Hind’ reverberated in the air till the afternoon.

The main attraction of the day was the procession by students and staff of JSS Group of Institutions carrying a 250-metre national flag on the thoroughfares of Dharwad.
