BJP President JP Nadda Putting Party Flag

A picture is doing rounds on social media in which Bhartiya Janta Party flag is seen over Indian national flag covering half of the national flag. The photograph is from prayer meeting of recently demised ex UP CM Kalyan Singh.

The BJP flag was put over Tricolour by BJP national president JP Nadda in presence of Prime Minster Narendra Modi.

Opposition leader has raised their objections and demanded legal action against BJP leaders for Insulting National flag.

National president of Indian Youth Congress Srinivas BV satirically asked on twitter that “Is it ok to place party flag over Indian flag in New India?”

Congress secretory, BP Singh demanded arrest of JP Nadda for insulting national emblem. Singh wrote on his twitter wall, “As per Indian Flag Code 3.16, No other flag shall be placed higher than or above or, side by side with the National Flag; nor shall any object including flowers or garlands or emblem be placed on or above flag.”
