DC Kohima clarifies on mandatory hoisting of flags

Deputy commissioner (DC) Kohima Shanavas C has informed that there has been “some misinformation” spreading in and around Kohima district with regard to distribution of Indian national flag claiming that directions have been given for mandatory hoisting of the tricolour in individual households, shops, etc.
In a notice, DC in this regard has clarified and reiterated the statement made during the meetings held with regard to “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign dated August 5 and August 8 with various government agencies and other stakeholders that the purchase and hoisting of the Indian national flag was “purely voluntary and not mandatory”.
However, DC said an appeal has been made to the public to participate in the “Har Ghar Tiranga” campaign for its successful implementation.
Further, DC has requested all concerned that any further clarification may be sought from the office of the deputy commissioner, Kohima.
