(News Agencies)- Shiv Sena in its mouthpiece Saamana on Wednesday said that the Indian flag was not insulted and it was intact when the farmer's agitation reached the Red Fort on Republic Day. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said last Sunday that India was shocked to see the insult of the Tricolour. The Saamana editorial said that footage available from that day's news coverage shows that the Tricolour was untouched. "The narrative built by BJP is that the Tricolour was insulted, which was done to demean the farmer's protest. It is true that one group of farmers broke the law and they should be brought to books, but to say that the entire protest is anti-national is a wrong narrative," said the Saamana article. It further added, "Farmers during the Republic Day tractor rally were carrying the Tricolour on their tractors as they love India more than BJP's cyber army." The editorial has also said that the real insult of the Tricolour is that "the government is not paying heed to the farmers sitting at the Delhi border for 60 days". "To let these farmers die on the road is the real insult of Tricolour. There are soldiers who are risking their lives at the border for the Tricolour, many of them are sons of these same farmers. How is sacrificing these farmers respecting the national flag," asked the editorial. Shiv Sena has also slammed the elaborate security arrangements being made at the Delhi border to stop farmers from entering Delhi again. If such arrangements would have been made in Ladakh, the Chinese Army wouldn't have entered our land and treated it like their father's, said the editorial. "Sir, Chinese army sitting in our territory is also insult of tricolour," said the editorial, referring to PM Modi's latest Mann Ki Baat address.Prime Minister feeling for the Tricolour is important, said the Sena article, adding that PM Modi was in the BJP-led group which hoisted the Tricolour at Lal Chowk under the leadership of Murli Manohar Joshi. "Tricolour is important, hence the defence budget has been increased by 7.1% this year. Central armed police forces like ITBP, BSF and CRPF have been given budget allocation of Rs 1,03,802.52 crore for the respect of Tricolour. But to make wrong narrative of what happened on Republic Day is respectable," asked the Sena editorial.
