As schools and other educational institutions work on a holiday, the 27th can be considered as a holiday instead, the order said. To this extent, Commissioner K. Suresh Kumar issued a circular on Thursday. As part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations, the state government has taken up many programs. National flags were hoisted on the houses in every village.
Moreover, on this occasion, programs like dance, music, rallies, painting, group discussions and uploading selfies with national flags were organized in the schools of the state till the 15th of this month. That is why the education department has declared August 13 as a working day. Now 27th August has been declared as a holiday instead.
