{A photograph} of the tribute ceremony to former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Kalyan Singh is quickly turning into the attention of the storm on social media. Kalyan Singh — the BJP veteran below whose watch the Babri Masjid was demolished — died yesterday on the age of 89.

Kalyan Singh was a beneficial character and a succesful chief who grew to become a “symbol of faith” for the frequent individuals, he had mentioned. But later within the day, there was apparently some rearrangement of the bier.

Its photograph, tweeted by the BJP, reveals Kalyan Singh’s physique mendacity in state, draped by the nationwide flag. But half of it was seen to be coated up by the celebration flag of the BJP.

“Is it ok to place party flag over Indian flag in New India?” questioned Srivivas BV, the chief of the Youth Congress.

“India will not tolerate the insult to the national flag,” the Youth Congress tweeted in Hindi from its official deal with.

“Party above the Nation.Flag above the Tricolor. BJP as usual : no regret, no repentance, no sorrow, no grief,” tweeted Samajwadi Party spokesperson Ghanshyam Tiwari.

Section 2 of the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act says, “Insults to Indian National Flag and Constitution of India”, says: “Whoever in any public place or in any other place within public view burns, mutilates, defaces, defiles, disfigures, destroys, tramples upon or otherwise shows disrespect to or brings into contempt (whether by words, either spoken or written, or by acts) the Indian National Flag or the Constitution of India or any part thereof, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to three years, or with fine, or with both.”
