Secunderabad Railway Station became the first railway station of South Central Railway to hoist a gigantic Tricolour on a 100 feet tall pole in the circulating area of its main entrance. The flag is an attempt of Secunderabad Division to rekindle the spirit of nationalism and instill the sense of pride among rail passengers.
The flag was hoisted by Sri R. Ashoka Chary, Senior Cabinman, Sri Gopal Reddy, Senior Technician/Works in presence of Shri C.B.N. Prasad, Station Manager, Shri Ashok Kumar, Superintendent of Police/GRP and members of the Public.
The Railway Board has directed that National Flags be hoisted at ‘A1’ category railway stations on the Indian Railways, acting upon which SCR has taken the initiative.
