He said, “The flag hoisting on the independence day is one of our sacred duties which we have been doing all these years and we will always defend our national flag.” He pointed out that right wing forces like BJP-RSS have always been alleging that we never celebrate our independence day, while the reality is our comrades have sacrificed their lives while struggling against British rule. In fact, RSS itself had played no role in the freedom struggle. Today, under the BJP rule, even our democratic structure faces challenges. Our party fought and played a frontline role in liberating the country from British rule, today we should take a pledge to fight and liberate the country from the BJP rule.” said D. Raja.
