MLA, Municipal chairman fight over hosting flag.

YENy DELHy (CyHAN)- A BJP MLA and a municipal chairman came nearly to blows over hoisting the tricolour to mark the 67th Independence Day much to the embarrassment of people gathered to witness the celebrations in Mussoorie. The flag was finally hoisted by a kid present at the ceremony.

While talking to the media, the municipal chairman Manmohan Singh Malla said that it was decided during a meeting that the flag will be hoisted by him but the BJP MLA came to the event with his goons and started fighting over the issue. On the other hand the BJP MLA called it an unfortunate incident and said that it has always been the tradition in Mussoorie that the MLA has hoisted the flag.
