NEW DELHI: The Congress today took a swipe at the BJP after the tricolour at the ruling party’s headquarters slid to the ground when BJP chief Amit Shah was trying to unfurl it.
The Congress questioned how the BJP planned to manage the country when they cannot even handle the national flag.
The Congress posted a video on its official Twitter handle in which the BJP chief was seen unfurling the flag, which slid to the ground accidentally when he pulled the string to unfurl it.
However, Shah immediately caught hold of the string and pulled the flag up. The Congress tweeted, “Those who cannot handle the flag, how will they handle the country?” “If those people who have treated the flag with contempt for over 50 years had not done so, the flag would not have been insulted like it was today,” the party said. Those that give “certificates of patriotism” to people, do not even know the etiquettes of the national anthem, the Congress said. —PTI
