Palakkad (Kerala), Aug 15 (IANS) RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Tuesday unfurled the Indian tricolour at a government-aided school here despite being told by authorities that political personalities were not permitted do this.

The District Collector and police had told the Karnakeyamen School management near here that since the school was state-supported, only people's representatives or the head of the school could raise the flag and not political personalities.

The school belongs to RSS supporters and they had invited Bhagwat to be the chief guest on India's Independence Day.
