Get pics of houses not hoisting national flag of India, Uttarakhand BJP chief tells supporters

National flag of India.

Uttarakhand: Uttarakhand BJP chief Mahendra Bhatt’s remark at a public gathering that “people’s nationalism can be questioned if they don’t hoist the tricolour in their homes” during the ‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ campaign triggered sharp condemnation from opposition parties and even local residents.

Videos of his statement have been widely circulated on social media, Times of India reported.

Speaking at an event in Haldwani on Wednesday, Bhatt said, “People won’t see owners of those houses with trust where the tricolour is not hoisted this Independence Day… Get me photographs of those houses where the tricolour is not hoisted. People would like to see who is a nationalist and who isn’t.”
