Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, Mar 12: Maintaining that sanctity and position of the State has to be maintained at all costs, the State Government today warned that any deviation in this regard shall amount to insult to the Jammu and Kashmir Prevention of Insult to State Honors Act, 1979.
The State Flag has the same sanctity and position as the Union Flag has under the Indian Constitution and other statutory provision. Therefore, this sanctity and position has to be maintained at all cost. It’s non-hoisting along with the Union Flag amounts to insult to the Flag as per Provisions of the State Honors Act, said a Government circular, issued today.
According to the circular, all the Constitutional authorities are enjoined upon to maintain the sanctity of the State Flag at all cost, as is being done in respect of the Union Flag. The Flag shall always be hoisted jointly on the buildings housing Constitutional Institutions and shall be used on the official cars of the Constitutional Authorities, it further adds.
