Visit Uttarakhand and hoist tricolour anywhere: Nishank to Omar
Dehra Dun: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhariyal Nishank on Wednesday invited his Jammu and Kashmir counterpart Omar Abdullah to visit the hill state and hoist the tricolour anywhere.
Talking to reporters here, he voiced concern over the Jammu and Kashmir government thwarting BJP`s march to Lal Chowk in Srinagar for unfurling the national flag there.
"The national flag is a symbol of pride and every citizen has the right to hoist it freely anywhere in the country," he said.
Nishank extended invitation to Abdullah to come to Uttarakhand and hoist the tricolour.
"I invite him (Abdullah) to come to Uttarakhand and freely hoist the tricolour anywhere.
"I want to assure him that the BJP will welcome him,” he said.
