Kerala medical scam: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat cold-shoulders BJP leaders

Mohan Bhagwat

After a major setback, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Chief Mohan Bhagwat finally hoisted the national flag in Karnakkiyamman School here, on 15 August, to mark the 71st Independence Day of India. This was done after a memo was issued to the school by the District Collector which said that a political leader should not be allowed to hoist a flag in an aided school which would be deemed inappropriate. He also added that only a teacher or elected representative of the people was allowed to do so.

A local media reported that the government had earlier issued an order in this regard.

The News Minute quoted Advocate E Krishnadas, BJP's Palakkad district president as saying, "The collector is acting like the branch secretary of Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM) that is why such a circular was sent at 11 pm last night".

Machine gun attack on UN Mali base in Timbuktu kills seven
Annadif, the MINUSMA commander, called for those responsible for "these terrorist acts" to be brought to justice. Malian troops repulsed the attackers, who lost two of their own men in the raid, he added.

Ahead of the flag hoisting, the RSS and BJP strongly criticised the move and blamed the ruling CPI (M) for the diktat. They have asserted that Bhagwat would hoist the flag as anyone can hoist the flag on Independence Day according to the flag code. The BJP has challenged this decision.

RSS sarsangh chalak Mohan Bhagwat, who is on a two-day visit to the district, participated in the closeddoor session of the Pranthiya Vaicharika Sadas Baitak held here on Monday.
