The “Khadi national flag” has been installed in Leh, the UT's capital city. It has a length of 225 feet with a width of 150 feet and weighs 1000 kilogram, according to national broadcaster Doordarshan, which broadcast the inauguration ceremony.
Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane, who is on a 2-day visit to Ladakh, attended the event, along with several senior Army officials.
Meanwhile, Union health minister Mansukh Mandaviya described this as a “moment of great pride for India.” Mandaviya tweeted, “On Gandhi Ji's Jayanti, the world's largest Khadi Tiranga is unveiled in Leh, Ladakh. I salute this gesture which commemorates Bapu's memory, promotes Indian artisans, and also honours the nation.”
