AAP leader criticizes national flag on Central Universities

After HRD minister Smriti Irani has ordered to hoist the national flag at all Central Universities to promote nationalism, Aam Admi Party leader Kapil Mishra did not take much time to criticize it.

Expressing his opinion, AAP leader took to twitter, tweeting, “I just have one question, will Centre hoist the national flag at Kashmir University. After JNU, the tricolour should be hoisted in Srinagar. Decision to hoist the national flag in Central Universities is a good decision. Now we want to know when all the anti-nationals will be arrested?”

Yesterday, the government has decided to make it mandatory for all central universities to fly the national flag prominently to inculcate a sense of nationalism in campuses.

The official release from the HRD Ministry said the national flag should be flown on a 207-feet high mast on their university campuses to signify “strong and united” India.

The decision was taken at a meeting of Union HRD minister Smriti Irani with vice chancellors of central universities.

This decision was taken referring to the ongoing JNU issue, where a student leader in Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is under arrest for sedition, after anti-India slogans were allegedly raised at a campus event in memory of Parliament attacker Afzal Guru.
