The Telangana government will unfurl the tricolour on the tallest mast in Hyderabad on the occasion of the state’s Formation Day on June 2.

Chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao directed the state chief secretary on Tuesday to make arrangements for unfurling the flag at the Bathukamma Ghat of the Hussain Sagar Lake, a release from his office said.

Noting that there is a national flag at Ranchi, which stands tall at 293 feet, Rao said the flag here should be at a height of 301 feet.

The chief minister said the proposed flag would promote nationalism among citizens.
