Bring flags found on roads or in bad condition to Collectorate or Tehsil Office for proper disposal
R Vimla, District Collector, asked the people not to use either paper or plastic made tricolours to mark the Independence Day. In response to a public interest litigation, the High Court has order ban on using paper or plastic national flags.
It is observed that the youths use such flags on the occasion of national festival or cultural programmes but later they are found on the open space or roads, leading to insult to the national flag. She pointed out that the High Court has directed to dispose of such flags in a proper way.
The flags which are in bad condition should be collected in cloth bags or in clothes should be disposed of before sunrise in the Collectorate or Tehsil Office in presence of senior officers with respect. Everybody should stand up during this process and should not leave the place till the flags are not properly disposed of, Vimla directed.
She also asked to seek cooperation from social organisations and students for collecting the flags found on open space or roads and hand over them to the Collectorate or Tehsil Office.
