Home Ministry has appealed to citizens not to use plastic flags on the background of Independence Day. The Ministry of Home Affairs has advised that the use of a paper flag should be used instead of the official ban on plastic shades. It has been appealed to be careful not to insult the national flag by sending a letter about this. The letter has been sent to the chief secretary, the manager of all government departments, the secretary of the ministry, the Indian government.
Last year, after the Independence Day, the Union Home Ministry had requested not to use plastic flags from next year. After the event, these flags are thrown in the road with the gutter. This insults the flag of the National Flag. There is a rule to destroy the nation’s nation. However, by throwing the flag on the road in such a way, it falls under the feet of the people. It is difficult to establish proper disposal of plastic flags. In addition plastic is dangerous to the environment. These plastics also threaten animal health. The Ministry urged the state government and union territories to use paper or plastic flags.
