"All I can say is that no flag can be levelled equal to the national flag. It is a decision of the High Court. It is legal matter. It shall be dealt legally", Singh told reporters while replying to a question on the flag issue here last night.
    
"National flag would be respected and that is our endeavour", he said, adding "I have not talked in this regard with anybody and BJP has a stand. We should act accordingly".
    
An order of the Jammu and Kashmir High Court had this week directed the state government to hoist the state flag, along with the national flag, on all official buildings and vehicles of constitutional authorities.
    
Meanwhile, JKNPP held a massive demonstration against the BJP for compromising on all its pre-poll pledges and for 'submitting unilaterally' to the dictates of its coalition partner only for 'remaining glued' to power over the issue of flag.
    
He said that as the J&K High Court had only given its judgement on the basis of arguments put forth by the parties, the BJP needed to explain to the people as to what prompted it to subscribe to the PDP, NC and separatists' slogan of 'Do Nishan and Do Vidhan' in the state.
