Tricolour hoisted on top of clock tower in Lal Chowk after 30 years

SRINAGAR: The Indian Tricolour was unfurled atop the Clock Tower in Srinagar’s famous Lal Chowk area to mark the country’s 73rd Republic Day.

On the occasion of India’s 73rd Republic Day celebrations, the locals along with NGOs and Administration held a flag hoisting ceremony at the Lal Chowk area. Two local activists Sajid Yousuf Shah and Sahil Bashir were carried by a crane on top of the clock tower where they unfurled the flag.

The activist used a hydraulic crane elevator to install the national flag on top of the clock tower amidst rendition of the national anthem.

It was undoubtedly a historic moment as the national flag was hoisted atop Clock tower in Srinagar Lal Chowk, 30 years after veteran BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi did it for the first time. Senior BJP leader had hoisted the national flag at Lal Chowk in 1992 at the peak of militancy in the valley.
