New Delhi: A photo of the accolade function to previous Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh is quickly turning into the eye of the tempest via online media. Kalyan Singh – the BJP veteran under whose watch the Babri Masjid was destroyed – passed on yesterday at 89 years old.
Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had visited Lucknow to offer his appreciation. Kalyan Singh was a significant character and an able pioneer who turned into a “image of confidence” for the commoners, he had said. However, later in the day, there was evidently some modification of the casket.
Its photograph, tweeted by the BJP, shows Kalyan Singh’s body lying in state, hung by the public banner. In any case, a big part of it apparently was concealed by the party banner of the BJP. Is it alright to put party banner over Indian banner in New India?” addressed Srivivas BV, the head of the Youth Congress.

“India won’t endure the affront to the public banner,” the Youth Congress tweeted in Hindi from its authority handle.
“Party over the Nation.Flag over the Tricolor. BJP as regular : no lament, no contrition, no distress, no sorrow,” tweeted Samajwadi Party representative Ghanshyam Tiwari.

Area 2 of the Prevention of Insults to National Honor Act says, “Affronts to Indian National Flag and Constitution of India”, says: “Whoever in any open spot or in some other spot inside general visibility consumes, ravages, mutilates, contaminates, deforms, annihilates, stomps all over or in any case shows lack of regard to or brings into hatred (regardless of whether by words, either spoken or composed, or by acts) the Indian National Flag or the Constitution of India or any part thereof, will be rebuffed with detainment for a term which might stretch out to three years, or with fine, or with both.”
Recently, an occurrence of lack of regard to the banner had occurred at the famous Red Fort during the ranchers’ assembly. After the ranchers entered the forecourt of the stronghold, climbed its bulwarks, and raised a strict banner on a pole outside, the Center said it would “not endure discourtesy to the banner”.
