Rajkumar Pandey, lawyer of the petitioner Shahidul Rehman, said the case filed before the chief judicial magistrate Ajay Srivastava, says that as per the Constitution, commercialization of national flag is not allowed, no words can be printed on it, it cannot be used to decorate tables of guests and dignitaries on the dais nor can it be spread on floors.

The petition argued that the cover of Advani's book has the tricolour in its background. Moreover, the hoardings of the book cover were also displayed in the city on the launch of it on June 30 for publicity.

All this has happened in the presence of Advani when his book was released on June 30 in a programme which is an insult to the Tricolour, said the petition.
