Party flags similar to tricolour should not be allowed: Haryana Minister Anil Vij

New Delhi: Haryana Health Minister Anil Vij on Sunday said the Election Commission should not allow political parties to use flags similar to national flag.

“A ban should be imposed on party flags bearing resemblance to country’s tricolour,” Vij said. He also posted a tweet in this regard.

The BJP MLA from Ambala Cantt said “Congress, NCP and TMC are using hand, watch and flowers respectively in their party flags, with three colours in their background which look similar to the national flag”.

He said he would soon take up the matter with the Election Commission so that a guideline could be issued to all the political parties to restrain them from using party flags bearing resemblance to the tricolour.
