Pictures of the tribute ceremony for Bharatiya Janata Party pioneer Kalyan Singh in Lucknow – went to by a few senior BJP pioneers – have made discussion due to how a segment of the public banner was concealed by the saffron party’s banner.
Singh, who was CM of Uttar Pradesh when the Babri Masjid was crushed in December 1992, died on Saturday.
The photograph, which the BJP’s true Twitter handle had shared, shows Singh’s body hung with the public banner. Somewhat less than half of the public banner, in any case, can’t be seen because the BJP banner has been put on top of it.
A few resistance pioneers and others remarked on the photographs via online media, saying that the BJP was preferring the party over the country – a claim they have evened out in the past also.
Pictures show that the party banner was set on the body and the public banner by BJP president J.P. Nadda. Before the day, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi had gone to offer his appreciation, the body was hung distinctly in the public banner.
“India won’t endure the affront to the public banner,” the Indian Youth Congress tweeted in Hindi. IYC pioneer Srinivas B.V. too scrutinized the demonstration.
Samajwadi Party representative Ghanshyam Tiwari concurred with the analysis, saying the BJP has a long history of setting the party over the country.
