PM Modi on Sunday called upon all citizens to turn the `Har Ghar Tiranga` campaign into a mass movement by hoisting or displaying the national flag at their homes and using the `Tiranga` as a display picture on their social media accounts between August 2 and August 15 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of India's Independence.
