'One nation can't have 2 flags': BJP condemns ex-J&K CM's tricolour comment
Mufti recently said she won't raise the tricolour till J&K state flag is restored.
She made the comments with the flag of erstwhile J&K state on her table.
Union Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad called her comments anti-national.
He said, “We condemn how Mehbooba Mufti has insulted the Indian tricolour.
Her statement that she won't raise the tricolour until the J&K state flag is restored via Article 370 - there can't be any comment more objectionable than this.
The tricolour is India's national flag.
Jammu & Kashmir is an inviolable part of India.
Article 370 was removed as per Constitutional process.
Both Houses of Parliament cleared it.
Today, J&K has good administration, strict action against terror.
People are happy there.
To such a statement about not raising the tricolour till the state flag is restored, we want to say - Article 370 will never be restored.
It has ended.
One nation can't have two symbols, two chiefs.
There can't be two flags.”
