STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: “National Flag in every country of world is the sign of national pride and is hoisted only on selected occasions in respective countries. Nowhere in any country, a National Flag is used by any political party, ruling or otherwise, because every political party has its own flag, which party activists and leaders are authorised to carry in accordance with the rule of law. It is unacceptable in the interest of dignity of the National Flag that it can be used or carried by any political party in its programmes,” said Prof Bhim Singh, NPP Supremo in a press statement issued on Saturday. Prof Bhim Singh, along with several other travelling passengers, was held up in New Delhi, when crowd of poor people, men, women as well as children were going in a procession across Parliament Street and Police was escorting the same. “Every third person in the process was carrying National Flag and hoardings with slogans in support Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). We got the information that the procession is going to Ram Lila Ground, where a rally in support of CAA will be held,” Prof Singh added. Singh expressed shock that how ruling parties and their supporters were misusing the national flag in support of CAA. Prof Singh along with some other Supreme Court lawyers was able to cross road only after an hour and same was the situation of hundreds of vehicles in Connaught Place, New Delhi. Singh urged the President, Ramnath Kovind to intervene in the matter and issue an urgent Ordinance so that no political party can use National Flag in any political meeting pro or against ruling class. He also appealed to all political parties and NGOs to take up this movement with the President of India in defense of National Flag, which represents pride of the nation.
