RSS chief to hoist flag in Kerala school on Republic Day

After an ugly spat over the unfurling of the national flag in Kerala on August 15, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat is all set to hoist the tricolour again in the left-ruled state on Republic Day.

He will hoist the flag on January 26 in a school on the outskirts of Palakkad, RSS members said.

Bhagwat will be in Kerala to attend a three-day Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) camp, to be held in a school near Palakkad town from January 26.

“The sarsanghchalak ji (RSS chief) always hoists the national flag on Independence Day and Republic Day wherever he is on these days. Since on January 26 he will be in Kerala, he will hoist the flag there. It should only be seen in this light,” a senior Sangh functionary said.

Sangh members added that the school where the RSS event is being organised is under the administration of the outfit’s Bharatheeya Vidya Nikethan.

“There will be a programme on the morning of January 26 to mark and celebrate Republic Day, when sarsanghchalak ji will unfurl the national flag,” RSS’s state coordinator KK Balram told.

Balram said there was no need to take permission from the local administration as the event was being organised in a Sangh-run school and not in a government institute.
