LUCKNOW: With schools, colleges and a majority of other private establishments still closed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there was an uncertainty over Independence Day functions which has had a direct impact on the sale of Tricolours by the Khadi Gram Udyog. "Every year, we witness a rise in the sale of the national flag. But this year, there is almost no demand. Except for government offices, most private establishments are not holding the flag hoisting ceremony. They say that since everyone is working from home, there is no point is calling employees for I-Day celebrations," said an employee of the Khadi Ashram in Lucknow. He further said that nearly 70 per cent of the sale come from schools, colleges and other educational institutes but this year, there are hardly any orders from them. (IANS)
