PM Modi ‘Insulted’ National Flag on Yoga Day ?


PUDUCHERRY: The lodging of a police complaint against Prime Minister Narendra Modi for allegedly ‘insulting’ the national flag during the International Day of Yoga celebrations created ripples in the Union Territory on Monday. The ‘news’ made rounds on WhatsApp even as the nation was buoyant with the successful celebration of Yoga Day.

V Sundar, a resident of Nellithope, approached the Orleanpet Police with a complaint against Modi stating that he had insulted the national flag. But police refused to hear him initially. On persisting, they issued him an acknowledgement receipt.

Asked what prompted the complaint, Sundar, general secretary of Dalit Sena and administrator of WhatsApp group Puducherry Poraligal Kuzhu, said he received a message on Monday showing “Prime Minister wiping his face with the national flag” during the Yoga Day celebrations in New Delhi.

Following this, he approached Orleanpet police at 3 pm and lodged a complaint as he felt Modi had insulted the national flag. Sundar said he gave the complaint to inspector Viravallabane. At 3.50 pm, an acknowledgment receipt was issued by the in-charge of the police station, he added.

When contacted, Senior Superintendent of Police (Law and Order) V J Chandran, told Express that he would enquire and confirm the veracity of the complaint.
