Jammu and Kashmir state flag removed from civil secretariat building
Srinagar : Jammu and Kashmir state flag has been removed from the civil secretariat building in Srinagar.
After scrapping of Article 370 of Indian constitution, that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, only Indian flag will be placed on the civil secretariat building.
A report by India Today said that the officials have confirmed the media house that only Indian flag will be seen at the government buildings.
However, not all government offices have taken off the Jammu and Kashmir state flag yet. Till last week both the flags were seen at the civil secretariat building.
"The removal of flag is in continuation of abrogation of Article 370 and not dependant on official bifurcation from October 31," said a top source in the J&K government to India Today.
"Access by Parliament is already given (on abrogation) and the national flag is expected to take precedence at all government offices," confirmed another top source in the administration.
