Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday unfurled the tricolour from the ramparts of Red Fort in Delhi as the country is celebrating ‘Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav’, marking 75 years of Independence.
In the morning, PM Modi extended his greetings on the occasion of the 75th Independence Day. “Greetings to you all on Independence Day. May this year of the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ infuse new energy and new consciousness among the countrymen. Jai Hind!” PM Modi tweeted.
Indian Air Force (IAF) Mi-17 V5 helicopters showered petals on the venue as PM Modi hoisted the tricolour. They made an appearance at the Independence Day celebrations after a gap of 24 years. IAF’s Su-30s, Mi-8s and the Surya Kiran Aerobatic Team took part in the 1997 celebrations to mark the 50th Independence Day.
Javelin star Subedar Neeraj Chopra, who won India’s first gold medal in track and field at the Tokyo Olympics, was among the around 240 Olympians, support staff and SAI and sports federation officials were present on the Gyan Path in front of the Red Fort.
In Tokyo Olympics 2020, India recorded its best-ever medal haul by winning seven medals – one gold, two silver and four bronze.
