Srinagar: Former J-K chief minister and National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah today accused authorities of unfurling tricolour at Clock Tower Lal Chowk for ‘photo ops’
Hours after the national flag of India was unfurled atop the Clock Tower in Srinagar in view of the January 26 event, Omar Abdullah accused authorities for ‘insulting’ the national flag.
He tweeted: “Tricolour disappears in less than a couple of hours. It didn’t even remain there for the day. Why insult the National Flag Flag of India just for a photo op? Is this what patriotism & nationalism has come to? Photo ops & trolling?.”
In another tweet he wrote: “If you don’t know your Indian Flag Code then here is a bit of help – “As far as possible display from sunrise to sunset” which means that it can be flown 24×7, 365 days a year as long as other provisions of the flag code are followed.”
