State government circular approving only heads of educational institutions to hoist the tricolor, blown in air by RSS chief.
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat unfolded the national flag on Friday at a Sangh Parivar managed higher secondary school affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) here, where he was the chief guest. The State government circular restricting the right to hoist the national flag on Republic Day in educational institutions across the State only to the concerned headmaster or principal was ignored in this context.
BJP State president Kummanam Rajasekharan and top RSS leaders in the State also attended the function, which began at 9.10 am with 8000 cadres of RSS from across the State also being present. Mr. Bhagwat spoke about evolving more nationalistic feelings to fight decisive and terrorist challenges. The Vyasa Vidya Peetom Higher Secondary School at Kallekkad, where Mr. Bhagwat hoisted the national flag, is run by the Vidya Bharati Akhil Bharatiya Shiksha Sansthan.
