Members of the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) tied rakhis on Tricolour in honour of soldiers of the country and prayed for their safety on Raksha Bandhan.

While staying at their home, party workers celebrated the festival by tying rakhis on the National Flag.

Arun Sood, state BJP president, said soldiers guard the borders and risk their lives for the safety of our nation.

Earlier, Mahila Morcha members used to tie rakhi on the wrists of soldiers on this occasion. Due to the pandemic, party workers were asked to tie rakhi in this unique manner.
