RSS Chief To Raise National Flag In Left Ruled Kerala On Republic Day

Undeterred by an ugly spat over the unfurling of the national flag in Kerala on August 15, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat is all set to hoist the tricolour again in the left-ruled state on Republic Day.

The flag will be hoisted on January 26 in a school on the outskirts of Palakkad in Kerala, RSS members said.

Mr Bhagwat will be in Kerala to attend a three-day camp of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), starting January 26, to be held in a school near Palakkad town.

“The sarsanghchalakji (RSS chief) always hoists the national flag on Independence Day and Republic Day wherever he is on these days. Since on January 26 he will be in Kerala, he will hoist the flag there. It should only be seen in this light,” a senior Sangh functionary said.

Sangh members added that the school where the RSS event is being organised is under the administration of the RSS’s Bharatheeya Vidya Nikethan.

A functionary said the RSS was a nationalist organisation and celebrating these national days was a part of its culture.

“It was very unfortunate that last year the state government ordered the school not to allow him to hoist the flag,” the functionary said.

    It is the right of an Indian citizen to hoist National Flag at a public place on such occasions like National Days. I simply am unable to understand the psyche of CM of Kerala State to stop such an act. In fact he should facilitate such hoistings , if the same are being prevented by anti-national elements!
