The hoisting of National Flag during 66th Republic Day of India raked in fresh debate as India's Vice President Hamid Ansari failed to "salute" the National Flag. While debate is on whether Hamid "violated" norms or not is on, social-media is abuzz over Hamid's act.
A photo featuring Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee were seen saluting to the National Flag and it also seen Hamid Ansari oblivious of what's going around him. At a time, all the attendees at Rajpath were paying rich tributes to National Flag, India's Vice President himself not following the custom raised several eye balls. While many claimed it wasn't deliberate and Hamid has "no intention" to hurt the sentiments, but his act certainly caught him off guard.
