At an event marking the 75th anniversary of India’s independence, Arvind Kejriwal addressed thousands of students at Thyagaraj Stadium.
आज़ादी की 75वीं वर्षगांठ की पूर्व संध्या पर आज क्या शानदार माहौल था। पूरी दिल्ली ने एक साथ हाथ में अमर तिरंगा लेकर मिलकर राष्ट्रगान गाया।
हमारी यही एकता हमारी सबसे बड़ी ताक़त है। हम इसी तरह मिलकर देश को आगे बढ़ाएंगे और एक दिन भारत को दुनिया का नम्बर-1 देश बनाएंगे। pic.twitter.com/j1UwJVCYFv

“Delhi has become the City of tricolours. We have installed 500 high-mast national flags across Delhi with the objective that people should see the national flag everywhere they go and do not forget the country”, he said.
Kejriwal spotted as many as nine high-mast tricolours on his way to the venue of the event.
The Chief Minister also asked everyone to pledge to take India to greater heights.
He emphasized that Indians are the most intelligent and industrious people in the world. We need to take a pledge to make the nation number one in the world.
He urged to take a pledge to not throw garbage on streets and keep our roads and surroundings clean.
He was accompanied by Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and other officials.
Well-known singers Sukhvinder Singh and Asees Kaur captivated the audience with their patriotic song performances.
Kejriwal said the Delhi Government has delivered national flags to 25 lakh children to instil a sense of patriotism in them.
He said freedom fighters made great sacrifices for the nation, and it was time to realize their dreams.
“Babasaheb not only fought for the country but also for the rights of Dalits and oppressed people. He gave us the best constitution in the world. Shaheed-E-Azam Bhagat Singh laid down his life for the nation at the age of 23. His martyrdom teaches us about supreme sacrifice for the country”, he added.
