Union Culture and Tourism Minister Prahlad Patel on Saturday thanked Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for "rectifying his mistake" after accusing him of using the national flag as a "decoration" during televised media addresses.
Last week, Mr Patel wrote to the chief minister, alleging that the flag seen behind him during his press briefings appeared to be in violation of the flag code.
On Saturday, the minister noted that when Mr Kejriwal addressed a press conference, the flag behind him appeared to have been changed.
व्यक्ति अगर भूलवश गलती करता है,तो गलती स्वीकारता है फिर उसे सुधारता है @ArvindKejriwal जी ने अगर अपनी गलती मानकर माफी मांगी होती तो उनका बड़कपन होता?! लेकिन उनकी चुप्पी ने शंका को जन्म दिया।आपने अपनी गलती भले स्वीकार न की हो पर सुधार किया! धन्यवाद आपका @PMOIndia@JPNadda@BJP4MPpic.twitter.com/OHt7aB0Upp— Prahlad Singh Patel (@prahladspatel) June 5, 2021
"If a person commits an error by mistake, he accepts his mistake and then rectifies it. If Arvind Kejriwal ji had admitted his mistake and apologised he would have shown his large heartedness. But his silence gives rise to doubts. You have not accepted your mistake but at least corrected it. Thank you," Mr Patel tweeted tagging BJP president JP Nadda and the PMO.
