BJP’s demand to change the name
Guntur (AP) – Tricolour adorns the Jinnah Tower of Guntur. MLA Mohammad Mustafa said that at the request of various groups, it was decided to paint the tower in Tricolour and also hoist the National Flag.
Guntur City Mayor Kaveti Manohar said that since the last few weeks BJP workers have for no reason been creating controversy over this tower. We have decided to hoist the National Flag near the tower after talking to the Muslims on the campus. (What is the need to talk to the local Muslims to decide on hoisting the National Flag ? India is an independent nation. Everyone has the right to hoist the National Flag anywhere in India, following the flag code – Editor)
#RepublicImpact | Guntur’s Jinnah Tower painted in Tricolour
— Republic (@republic) February 3, 2022
BJP in charge of the State of AP, Sunil Deodhar told reporters that they will continue the agitation till the name of Jinnah Tower is changed. It is good that it has been painted with the Tricolour, but even its name should change. Just like the name of Aurangzeb Marg, Jinnah Tower’s name should be changed to ‘APJ Abdul Kalam Tower’.
On Republic Day, some Hindus tried to hoist the National Flag on the Jinnah Tower, but the Police stopped them. (Is Guntur in India or Pakistan ? – Editor)
