Stalin, the chief minister of Tamil Nadu, changed his Twitter profile picture to one of Karunanidhi

Stalin updated his profile photo after Prime Minister Modi invited everyone to do the same as part of a group celebration of the national flag to commemorate the country's 75th anniversary of independence.

The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, M. K. Stalin, updated his Twitter profile image, adding a picture of M. Karunanidhi with the Indian tricolor in the backdrop and noting that his late father had made sure that chief ministers have the authority to carry the flag.

Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi changed the display picture on his social media accounts to a "tiranga" (Tricolor) and urged others to do the same as part of a collective celebration of the national flag to mark 75 years of the country's independence, Stalin, who is also the president of the ruling DMK, changed his profile picture.

Stalin tweeted that Kalaignar, a Tamil scholar, "ensured the right of state Chief Ministers waving the (national) flag on August 15 in 1974."

The display image showed the late Karunanidhi descending steps while being escorted by officials, maybe at Fort St. George, where the state secretariat is housed. In the background, a large pole was flapping with the Indian flag.

Adding, "#NewProfilePic," Stalin. On this Independence Day every year, the chief ministers of Tamil Nadu hoist the tricolor from Fort St. George's walls.
