New Delhi: The Karnataka high court has issued a circular encouraging all judicial officers, non-judicial officers and officials belonging to the district judiciary to hoist National Flags in their respective houses as part of the Union government’s ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign.
The Union government’s campaign aims to encourage households and institutions to hoist the tricolour between August 13 and 15 to mark 75 years of Independence. The execution of the campaign by the government, its officials, members of the ruling party and those in the opposition frequently makes news.
LiveLaw has reported that the circular issued by the Registrar General T.G. Shivashankare Gowda refers to a letter written by Union law minister Kiren Rijiju.
Rijiju’s letter, according to the report, elucidates the idea behind the campaign.
The circular says officers, judicial officers and district judiciary officials “are hereby encouraged to actively participate” in the campaign and “make it a huge success by hoisting the National Flag in their homes during the period from 13th to 15th August, 2022, in order to instil the feeling of patriotism in the hearts of people and reminisce the contribution of those who tirelessly work for nation building…”
The circular also notes that it has been informed that active participation in the campaign by members of the judiciary – “as upholders of the Constitutional values” – will have an encouraging impact on the public when it comes to the campaign.
“Therefore, the Hon’ble Minister has requested to support and leadership in encouraging the judiciary and officials/staff of High Court of Karnataka and District and Subordinate Courts in the State to hoist the National Flag in their homes during the period from 13th to 15th August, 2022 and making this ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign of the Government a huge success,” the circular says.
