Two incidents of @INCIndia one in Madhya Pradesh where leaders fight over flag hoisting and Nanded (Maharashtra) where they insulted tricolour flag as seen in video is condemnable.Clearly shows Congress doesn’t have any importance and value for #RepublicDay #CongInsultsTricolour pic.twitter.com/n0LhGNpHVP— भाजपा महाराष्ट्र (@BJP4Maharashtra) January 26, 2020
A violent clash among Congress workers marked the Republic Day program at the state party office in Indore on Sunday. Minutes before Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, who is also the PCC chief, arrived at the party's Gandhi Bhawan office for flag hoisting, two Congress leaders, Devendra Singh Yadav and Chandu Kunji were seen slapping each other.
The police deployed for the Chief Minister's security had to separate them. One group had to be driven away from the venue. Ironically, the chief minister in his speech said bonding the hearts of people was the striking feature common to India's and Congress' culture.
