He said, “Every house and institute should hoist the national flag on the roof top of it. The programme will start from August 9 to 11 during which an awareness campaign via social media etc., will be launched for the people to make them aware about the importance of hoisting the national flag.”

From August 11 to August 13, he further said, that they will launch campaigns in every village and town in J&K like the rest of the country with regard to the hoisting of national flags on the eve of Independence Day.
