RSS chief hoists Tricolour at Kerala school

Bypassing a state government directive, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday hoisted the national flag at a CBSE-affiliated private school in Kerala’s Palakkad district.

The RSS chief unfurled the national flag at Vyasa Vidhya Peethom, a higher secondary school.

In an apparent bid to prevent Bhagwat from hoisting the national flag at the school, the LDF government last week issued a directive that only department heads (headmasters in schools) should hoist flags at institutions.

The circular was issued in the backdrop of Bhagwat hoisting the national flag at a government-aided school in Palakkad on Independence Day, defying a directive from the district collector, who had then acted upon a complaint.

This time, BJP and RSS chose a private school known to be backed by pro-RSS ‘Vidya Bharati Akhil Bharatiya Shiksha Sansthan’.
