The Raj Bhavan has added a twist to the Tricolour cake eating row by claiming the national flag was painted on a silver foil placed before the Republic Day cake.

"A cardboard was used to hold the cake and on the silver foil covering the cardboard was a painted representation of the Tricolour. The cardboard or silver foil was never meant to be cut and consumed," a statement issued on behalf of Assam Governor JB Patnaik said on Wednesday.

"If anyone's feelings have been hurt in this regard, the Governor expresses deep regret and reinterates that there was no intention to show any disrespect or dishonour to the National Flag," it added.
