A local court has issued a notice to Congress Minister of Parliament Naveen Jindal, and to the central government, in a petition in which it has objected to the sale of bangles under the name of Tiranga by the MP's NGO, contending that this was violative of the National Flag Code.
The petition was moved by Deepanshu Bansal, against Jindal and the NGO Flag Foundation of India, and the Ministry of Home Affairs , seeking directions from the court that the defendants may be restrained from flouting the National Flag Code in their sale of th ebangles under the name of the national flag.
The petition was filed by advocate Ravi Sharma, who had argued that Tiranga, a popular name for the national flag, is being misused by the defendant for political and business purposes.
It further held that the flag is not a mere piece of cloth attached to a staff, but a symbol of a faith, family, dynasty or a country.
