New Delhi: In the backdrop of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's request to people to put 'tricolor' as the profile picture of his social media account, the Congress on Wednesday said its leader will display the tricolor picture of the country's first Prime Minister Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru in his hand.

Targeting the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the main opposition party also asked if those who did not hoist the tricolor at their headquarters for 52 years after independence, would they obey the Prime Minister? Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh tweeted,
हम हाथ में तिरंगा लिए अपने नेता नेहरू की DP लगा रहे हैं। लेकिन लगता है प्रधानमंत्री का संदेश उनके परिवार तक ही नहीं पहुंचा। जिन्होंने 52 सालों तक नागपुर में अपने हेड क्वार्टर में झंडा नहीं फहराया, वे क्या प्रधानमंत्री की बात मानेंगे? #MyTirangaMyPride https://t.co/JOiTkYC9cY — Jairam Ramesh (@Jairam_Ramesh) August 3, 2022
"While hoisting the flag on the banks of river Ravi in the Lahore session of 1929, Pandit Nehru said once again you have to remember that now this flag has been hoisted. As long as not a single Indian man, woman, or child is alive, this tricolor should not be bowed. The countrymen did the same.” He said, “We are putting the DP of our leader Nehru with the tricolor in hand.
But it seems the message of the Prime Minister did not reach his family only. Those who did not hoist the flag at their headquarters in Nagpur for 52 years, will they listen to the Prime Minister?" Congress's media and publicity chief Pawan Khera said while sharing screenshots of the Twitter profile of RSS and its chief Mohan Bhagwat. Sangh people, now adopt the tricolor." Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President JP Nadda, along with other leaders of the ruling party at the Center 'displayed' the picture on their social media accounts. But on Tuesday he raised the 'tricolor' and urged people to do the same. Prime Minister Modi had said in his 'Mann Ki Baat' program on Sunday that 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' is turning into a mass movement. He had requested people to put 'tricolor' as their profile picture on their social media accounts between August 2 and August 15.
