Tricolour on Govt buildings will kindle nationalism: Kavinder



JAMMU: Endorsing the decision of Lieutenant Governor J&K Manoj Sinha over hoisting Tricolour on all government buildings in the Union Territory as the most necessary step, senior BJP leader and former deputy chief minister Kavinder Gupta anticipated that it will invoke nationalism among the residents.
In a statement issued here on Monday, Kavinder said that the national flag of India is a symbol of honour and freedom for the country and it is of great significance to all the countrymen.
“We should respect and know everything about our national flag”, he maintained adding that it was supreme sacrifice of Shyama Prasad Mukherjee that we are witnessing such nationalistic changes in the UT of J&K.
He expressed confidence that this move on behest of LG Manoj Sinha will inspire people of J&K to tread in the direction ensuring unity and integrity of the country as never before. He said that J&K should now celebrate all the time its real integration with India as the barrier of Article 370 and Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir are nowhere to hinder the rights of people which the population of rest of the country enjoys. He said that National Flag is synonymous to courage and inspiration as it makes Indians remember about the sacrifices of freedom fighters. “We should always respect our national flag and must uphold its dignity even if it is at the cost of our lives”, Kavinder said adding that the visionary step by LG Manoj Sinha will go a long way in making people of the UT more inclined towards nation and to encourage them to become meaningful citizens.
Meanwhile, Kavinder Gupta has condemned the horrendous terrorist attack in Sopore, in which BJP’s Municipal Councilor Riyaz Ahmad and a police officer Shafqat Ahmad laid down their lives while another Councillor Shams-ud-Din Peer received injuries.
Expressing deep condolences with the bereaved families, the BJP leader said that those indulging in such ghastly acts are savage and enemy of the entire humanity. He said that security forces will ensure that soon these terror mongers face the law.
“This cowardly act by the terrorists is the sign of their frustration as in the new Kashmir under Prime Minister Narendra Modi there is no place for such heinous elements. Their days are numbered and soon they will be either behind bars or will get eliminated”, Kavinder said adding that the sacrifice of BJP’s family member will not go in vain rather it will be taken as a challenge to make party more strong in J&K.
