Lagadapati seeks action against TRS, other parties

Special Correspondent

VIJAYAWADA: Lagadapati Rajagopal, MP, has urged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to take action against Telangana Rashtra Samiti and other parties that have called upon people to hoist flags other than the national flag on Republic Day.

“Any fraud on the national flag, especially on the national importance days, attracts the Flag Code of the Indian Government and should not be spared. Unless stringent action is taken on those involved, or followed the anti-Flag Code rules, it is certainly and indirectly nothing but encouragement of unconstitutional practices,” he said in a letter addressed to the Prime Minister on Monday.
