Many private and missionary schools do not perform flag hoisting ceremony on significant days like Independence Day and republic Day. The same was reiterated by MLC Dr. Deepak Sawant at the state assembly. Many private and missionary schools in Maharashtra declare a holiday on 15th august and 26th January and fail to conduct the flag hoisting ceremonies. MLC Dr. Deepak Sawant called this to be an insult to the national flag and demanded that the flag hoisting ceremony be made compulsory in all schools. The move was welcomed by all the members of the state assembly. This was followed by Education Minister Vasant Purkhe’s immediate assurance that the national flag’s insult will not be tolerated at any cost and the government will formulate a law declaring flag hoisting ceremonies on 15th august and 26th January compulsory in schools.
