At a time when judiciary made it mandatory upon state to hoist state flag on official buildings, flags – BJP leader and J&K’s deputy chief minister Dr Nirmal Singh has said no flag can be hoisted at “equal level to the national flag”, thus apparently snubbing the High Court order.
J&K High Court recently mandated upon J&K Govt. to hoist state flag on all the government offices besides vehicles.
“No flag can be levelled equal to the national flag,” Dr Singh told newsmen last night. “National flag would be respected and that is our endeavour. I have not talked in this regard with anybody and BJP has a stand. We should act accordingly.”
“It is a decision of the High Court,” he said. “It is legal matter. It shall be dealt legally.”
