India installs its tallest flag in Attari, Pakistan cries 'espionage'

Posted March 08, 2017

While India on Sunday proudly hoisted the tallest tricolour in the country at the Attari border, neighbouring country Pakistan expressed its disappointment and fear over this small yet significant development. Before this, Ranchi had the record of nations tallest tricolor which is 293 feet high.

Pakistan's border guards have raised concerns over the tallest Indian flag at Attari which has been installed just 150 metres away from the border. Punjab state government has spent Rs.3.5 crore on erecting the flag and is not willing to concede any demand from across the border to bring its height down.

However, Pakistan is reportedly unhappy with India's decision to hoist its flag at the global border. It was hoisted by Anil Joshi, the Punjab Local Bodies Minister, and BJP Leader. The previous highest flag was 300 feet high.

Terming this as his dream project, Joshi said he took special permission from the Election Commission for the inauguration.
