All 46 Central Universities will hoist the tricolour atop a 207-feet tall flag mast “prominently and proudly” on their campuses to signify a “strong India” and the first will be hoisted at JNU, a resolution adopted at a meeting chaired by HRD Minister Smriti Irani said.
The decision was taken after the recent acts of anti-nationalism at the JNU and in Jadhavpur. The proposal for hoisting the national tricolour atop a 207-feet pole was put forward by Irani and unanimously endorsed by all the 46 Vice Chancellors.
The opposition, especially the Congress and the CPI found fault even with this decision, saying that this did not symbolize nationalism or patriotism in any manner. But Indians are standing up and raising their voice against the insult of the nation. See the video below.
