The Congress' grassroots front organisation, the Seva Dal, will hold monthly flag-hoisting ceremony as a revival of the front's old practice, its chief organiser said today.
Lalji Desai, who was appointed as chief organiser of the All India Congress Seva Dal in April this year, alleged that efforts were being made to divide the country on the basis of jingoism, religion and language.
"To counter that, Seva Dal will increase the respect for national flag to bring unity and make the patriotism stronger in the country," he said.
Desai said in the first phase, Dal had started flag-hoisting in every district across the country on the last Sunday of every month.
