In a goof-up, Punjab Cabinet Minister Bikram Singh Majitiha on Saturday unfurled the national flag upside down during a flag hoisting ceremony in Amritsar on Independence Day.

Presiding over Independence Day ceremony at Guru Nanak Auditorium, the cabinet minister hoisted the flag upside down. Majithia along with Deputy Commissioner Ravi Bhagat and Commissioner Amritsar Police Jatinder Singh Aulakh even saluted the national flag upside down.

The flag continued to fly upside down even when Majithia delivered his speech and it was hoisted into the right position when function was going to conclude. Later, when media asked about the “goof-up”, Majithia said it is the district administration which should answer how it has happened.
