He pointed out that although the state government procured the national flag and brought them into the distribution outlets including Ration shops, government offices, panchayat and Ward offices, schools, and colleges, the people have to buy the flags at a nominal cost to develop a sense of ownership to the nation.

Tripura has so far organized 35,013 programs in 372 events in a year. The yearlong celebration was based on five broad themes – freedom struggle, ideas, achievements, activities, and determination.
