Flag comes off as CM tries to Unfurl it during Independence day function

Srinagar, August 15: In what has largely been touted as an embarrassing situation for the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, the national tricolor fell off the post as Mehbooba Mufti began unfurling the flag at Bakshi stadium here.

However, the Chief Minister was quick to react and held the flag right in her hands saving some grace. The act was commendable as her guards also joined in and held the flag with her.

DGP Rajendra Kumar ordered an inquiry into the debacle and speaking to media persons said, “An inquiry was ordered immediately into the incident so as to fix the responsibility,” Kumar. The DGP said it was a lapse on part of someone and that person needs to answer. ”
