Bhubaneswar: Leader of Opposition Narasingh Mishra told the state Assembly that the violation of the Flag Code is not punishable under law.
The violation of the Flag Code is not punishable under law. But it is the moral responsibility of everyone to abide by it -Narasingh Mishra.
He was reacting to the allegations that he had violated the Flag Code by hoisting the tri-colour on the left side of his government vehicle.
He said state government should issue a circular to make everyone aware about the provisions in Flag Code of India so that it can be implemented in the right spirit.
Mishra thanked Singhdeo for raising the issue in the House. He, however, questioned the respect to the Tricolour given by RSS which has close links with the BJP, the party to which Singhdeo belonged.
He said the National Flag was not hoisted at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur even 52 years after Independence. The RSS did not consider the Tricolour as the National Flag, he said.
