Active participation of schoolchildren was also expected in the campaign. This campaign was launched as part of ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’. This parade was started in order for as many people as possible to display the National Flag in their homes. It also marks India’s 75th year of independence.
The unique nature of the boat rally was that the campaign was led by many anglers. The rally was taken from Ningli Bala to Ningli Ghat. One of the fishermen said that Jhelum is our home and that is why we are celebrating Tiranga campaign in Jhelum river.
Around 25 boats started from Ningli ghat towards Chankan bridge. Everyone was holding the national flag. Jhelum was turned into a Tricolor river. Meanwhile, the students waved the National Flag. Fishermen were also welcomed at Hatisha Bridge.
