Students, teachers, and officials of Jamia Millia Islamia in Delhi took out a Tiranga rally to commemorate 75th Independence Day.
The rally was flagged off by Vice Chancellor Prof. Najma Akhtar at the VC Office lawns as part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav.
"Students of the university and Jamia Schools, NCC cadets and NSS volunteers, teaching and non-teaching staff including Deans, HoDs and senior faculty members participated in the rally in large numbers with patriotic fervor," an official said.
Holding the tricolor in their hands and raising patriotic slogans, the participants passed through the Maulana Mohammed Ali Marg and covered the whole campus before the rally culminated at the university amphitheater.
After the rally, the volunteers distributed the national flag to nearby localities.
“Jamia is celebrating Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav with great zeal, enthusiasm, and patriotic fervor to commemorate the 75 glorious years of progressive independent India. We are organizing a number of programs on the occasion," VC Akhtar said.
A marathon will be flagged off from the MAK Pataudi Sports Complex of the university on August 14 at 10 am. An exhibition titled 'Recalling the Horrors of the British Rule in Pictorial and Poetic Afflictions' will also be inaugurated by the VC at Premchand Achieves and Literary Centre on the same day at 11.30 am.
