Tri-colour falls off post during R-Day function in Arunachal

GUWAHATI, JAN 26 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 1/26/2019 12:16:30 PM IST

In a deeply embarrassing moment, the tri-color fell off the post as it was hoisted at the main R-Day function in Itanagar, Arunachal Pradesh on Saturday.

In a clip that has gone viral on social media, the Governor of Arunachal Pradesh, BD Mishra, is seen walking up the ramp to hoist the flag. Then, the jawans and the Governor tug at the flag in order to hoist it into the air. But for some Inexplicable reason, the flag snaps off the pole and lands on the ground.

To his credit, though, the Governor appears unruffled by the incident and while a jawan holds the flag aloft in the air, the Governor salutes the flag while the national anthem plays in the background.

The flag was re-hoisted after the incident was over. An enquiry has been ordered into the incident.
