As India celebrates 75 years of Independence – Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, the Jammu and Kashmir administration has planned a series of special events to mark the glorious occasion.
Notably, in Kashmir, the occasion is also special because the UT and central authorities have been making zealous efforts to usher in a new era of development and harmony. After the abrogation of Article 370, strong efforts are being made to attract investment and boost employment in the region.
However, to foil inimical designs, security arrangements have also been beefed up across Jammu and Kashmir ahead of the Independence Day celebrations on Monday.
The Central Reserve Police Force on Friday organised a massive walkathon rally in the Budgam area. The event was conducted under the aegis of the CRPF 181 battalion. The rally was arranged as part of the ongoing “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign and Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations saw numerous participants from across the region.
Earlier today, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha led the Tiranga rally organised by the troops of the Border Security Force in Jammu and Kashmir’s Srinagar as a part of the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’.
