Srinagar: A Gujarat teenager girl has once again vowed to hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan, which falls on August 07, Zee News reported on Friday.
Tanzeem Merani (14), hailing from Ahmedabad, has said she wanted to celebrate the festival with soldiers posted in the Valley.
Notably, Merani had attempted to unfurl the tricolour in Srinagar on August 15, 2016. However, she was barred from doing so.
“Last time, I was stopped at the airport itself, and I had to unfurl the flag there. However, I will make sure I do it this time at Lal Chowk,” report quoting Merani said.
She threatened to sit on hunger strike in case authorities stop her again from unfurling the tricolour in Srinagar.
