      President Ram Baran Yadav skipped a pre-scheduled programme organised by Global Peace Foundation on Saturday expressing dissatisfaction over the misuse of children and national flag.

      The Foundation, which had been organising various programmes since past one week, organised a peace rally on Saturday with support from Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industries (FNCCI).

      The President's office had officially objected to the use of children in the programmes and asked the organisers to stop involving children by writing a letter.

      The President made up his mind not to attend the programme when he learnt the national flag was hoisted along with the flag of the Foundation at the programme.

      The national flag was later removed by police at the instructions of Kathmandu District Administration.

      The President and the administration expressed dissatisfaction for disrespecting the national flag by hoisting it alongside the flag of an organisation. nepalnews.com
