BJP has asserted that it would go ahead with its plan to hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Republic Day while the congress party said that the opposition party should not play politics on the national flag to satisfy their motives.
Jammu and Kashmir Governor N N Vohra said that peace and harmony wil prevail in the state on the solemn occasion of Republic day celebration.
“Unfurling national flag is a right of every Indian but no one has the right to create law and order problem,” Minister of State for Road Transport and Highways Jitin Prasada said.
He was responding to a question on the BJP youth wing’s Kolkata-to-Kashmir Rashtriya Ekta Yatra to unfurl the national flag in Srinagar on 26th January after a gap of 18 years.
On the change in his portfolio, Prasada said the charge had given him a “better scope to give new shape to road development programme in Uttar Pradesh.”
Prasada accused the BSP government of ignoring roads in the state as said “As road transport and highways minister, I will accord top priority to Uttar Pradesh in road development programme”.
