Red Fort to witness another flag hoisting

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will join a flag-hoisting ceremony at the Red Fort on Sunday to mark the 75th anniversary of the ‘Azad Hind government’ headed by Subhas Chandra Bose. Interacting with BJP workers via video-conference on Wednesday, Mr. Modi announced his plans to attend the ceremony. Traditionally, the Prime Minister hoists the Tricolour at the Red Fort on Independence Day. Mr. Modi said that while the Congress neglected great personalities such as Bhim Rao Ambedkar, Bose and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the BJP believed in remembering everybody who contributed to nation-building. On October 21, 1943, Bose announced the formation of the country’s first independent government.
