Palakkad: Yuvamorcha on Friday lodged a complaint against DYFI for insulting the Indian National flag. The flag was hoisted upside down by the DYFI protestors during the protests against hoisting of Jai Sreeram flex in the Palakkad Municipality. The act was in defiance of all the norms of Flag Code, 2002.
The DYFI protestors who climbed on top of the municipality building were holding the national flag upside down and hoisted it in the same manner.
