The Congress took a jibe at the BJP after the national flag which was hosted on the occasion of independence day at the saffron party’s headquarters fell on the ground when Amit Shah was unfurling it.
The Congress posted a video on its official Twitter handle in which the BJP chief is seen unfurling the flag, which falls down soon after he pulls the string. However, he immediately caught hold of the string and pulled the flag up. The Congress questioned how they planned to manage the country when they cannot handle the national flag.
जो देश का झंडा नहीं संभाल सकते, वो देश क्या संभालेंगे?
50 साल से ज्यादा देश के तिरंगे का तिरस्कार करने वालों ने अगर ये नहीं किया होता तो शायद आज तिरंगे का ऐसा अपमान न होता।
दूसरों को देशभक्ति का सर्टिफिकेट देने वालों को राष्ट्रगान का तौर-तरीका तक पता नहीं। pic.twitter.com/FmiEI5B7D7

The Congress tweeted, “Those who cannot handle the flag, how will they handle the country?”
“Those that give ‘certificates of patriotism’ to people, do not know the etiquettes of the national anthem’, the Congress added in the tweet.
