Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut has asked for President's Rule to be imposed in the state.
Currently, only Jammu and Kashmir is the only state in the country to have separate official flag along with the national tri-color under Article 370 of the Constitution. The Kannada and Culture Department of the state government on June 6 had notified the setting up of a nine-member committee to examine the feasibility and legal issues around the demand.
Puttappa and Gadada in their representation had requested the government to design a separate flag for "Kannada Naadu" and accord it legal standing. An official state flag for Karnataka is a longstanding demand of pro-Kannada activists.
However, former Advocate General Ashok Haranahalli said that the state should frame a flag code without giving scope for it to affect the unity and integrity of the country if it wants to have a separate flag. Later, in 2012, Chief Minister SV Sadananda Gowda made it mandatory for government offices, schools and colleges to hoist the Kannada flag on November 1, which is celebrated as the formation day of the state.
He dared the BJP leaders to make a public statement that the party is not in favour of a flag for Karnataka. We will give as much respect to the National Flag as always.
Jammu and Kashmir is the only state in India to have its own official flag.
But, off the record, even his party colleagues say the move may be politically motivated.
Politically various Chief Ministers of the state have played ping pong with the issue.
Ma Ramamurthy, son of freedom fighter and litterateur Veerakesari Seetharama Shastri, was the first to have conceptualised and designed the Yellow and Red flag for Karnataka. Siddaramaiah is banking on the surmise that the judiciary would uphold the right to have its own flag so long as the supremacy of the national flag is not violated which in effect would mean that it must be flown lower than the national tricolour. "Is there was any provision in the Constitution which prohibits the state from having its own flag?" The Constitution speaks of the National Flag and protocol that needs to be followed while handling and hoisting it. A state can have its own flag.
India is known for its diverse culture and various languages that the nation has. Strong states or provisioning to have state flags will not weaken the nation but in other way it will strengthen the nation.
