PPFA welcomes Jhanvi’s decision to hoist Tri-colour at Lal Chowk

Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA) welcomes the decision of Ludhiana girl Jhanvi Behal to hoist the national flag at Lal Chowk of Srinagar in J&K, where the Tri-colour was insulted in various occasions by the anti-nationals, on the occasion of 70th Independence Day.

Challenging the anti-national and separatist elements of Kashmir, high school student Jhanvi  dared them to stop her initiative to hoist the Tri-colour on 15 August and paid tributes to the known & unknown martyrs of India’s freedom struggle.

“We salute the spirit of teenage Jhanvi and urge each & every patriotic Indian national to support her in the mission. Jhanvi has shown the  emerging trend of patriotism generated among the Indian youngsters in the recent past,” said a statement issued by PPFA.

It may be mentioned that since 1998, a group of city based scribes  and patriotic citizens have been defying the diktat of separatist northeastern militants to hoist  the  national flag at Guwahati Press Club on every Independence Day and Republic Day.

Issued by Rupam Barua, Nava Thakuria, Pramod Kalita, Jagadindra Raichoudhury, Anup Sarma etc on behalf of PPFA.
