smriti irani

The Narendra Modi government today made it mandatory for central universities across the country to fly the national flag. The decision is said to have been put forward  by 46 central university vice-chancellors who met Union Human Resources Development Minister Smriti Irani.

The government has said the tricolour should be installed on a 207-foot mast and should weigh 135 kg. Under fire for its handling of the unrest in the Jawaharlal Nehru University, the decision came after nationwide protests by students for the release of JNU students union president Kanhaiya Kumar who was arrested on February 12 following an ABVP complaint that he had made statements that amounted to sedition.
