Kozhikode: In a move that may have far reaching consequences, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat hoisted the national flag at a government-aided school in Palakkad on Tuesday, ignoring a ban imposed by the District Collector.

The district authority had imposed a ban on politicians hoisting the national tri-colour in the school at Moothanthara run by Karnakiamman Educational Trust having close ties with the RSS.

The Collector gave the direction to the district police chief, the tahsildar, the deputy tahsildar and the District Education Officer on Monday night.

The police have recorded the programme.

The aided school is financially supported by the government and the such school managements are obliged to abide by government directions.
