New Delhi: Delhi's highest monumental flagpole, measuring 207 feet, was hoisted by member of parliament from Kurukshetra and chairman of Jindal Steel and Power, Naveen Jindal here at Central Park yesterday.

Jindal, who conceived the idea of monumental flagpoles, said he is, "inspired by Rahul Gandhi's idea to hoist our National flag near the Paliament.

The concept of monumental flagpoles was conceived and introduced by the founder of the Flag Foundation Naveen Jindal in 2009.

"The flag would be sufficiently illuminated that would enable it to be left flying from dusk to dawn. India now has the largest number of monumental flags in the world," Jindal said while hoisting the 46th monumental flag.

This comes after a policy decision of the Ministry of Home Affairs on December 23, 2009 which allowed the National Flag to fly day and night on a pole of height 100 feet and above with proper illumination.
