People reached the middle of the Yamuna River by boarding many boats at Yamuna. The mayor waved the tricolor in the middle of the Yamuna and gave a message to everyone to put the tricolor in the houses. Mayor Naveen Jain said that on the call of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the whole city is celebrating independence with much ado and noise.
Yatra tricolor released everywhere
Tiranga Yatra is released in different forms in all the streets and alleys of the city. In this sequence, we had made preparations to release a unique three-color yatra. Because our city of Agra, located on the banks of the Yamuna River, is also a lifeline for us and the city. Therefore, with the resolution to keep the Yamuna River clean and unbroken, and with the aim of conveying this resolution to the citizens, this tricolor trip was made in the Yamuna River. By taking this tricolor yatra out into the Yamuna River, it served to send a message that there is no longer such an area in the city of Agra where we do not celebrate the independence of the country.
Advisors Pradeep Agarwal, Amit Gwala, Gulab Singh Kushwaha, Anurag Chaturvedi, Sharad Chauhan, Sanjeev Chaturvedi, Sanjay Rai, Hari Om Goyal, Ashish Parashar etc. were present on this occasion.
