Omar Abdullah grills Indian authorities for ‘insulting’ Indian flag

Srinagar, January 26 (KMS): National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah today criticized the Indian authorities saying that they unfurled the Indian flag at Clock Tower Lal Chowk in Srinagar for ‘photo ops’.

Omar Abdullah said that the authorities had insulted the Indian 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.”
