Senior journalist A Mobi Singh said, "We do not think election manifestos of major parties like Congress and BJP for the polls are impressive to the people".
Before this, the title of the tallest national flag in India belonged to a 293-foot-high tricolour that was hoisted in Jharkhand's Ranchi.
Mr Joshi said in his statement that maintenance contract of the flag is given to a private company for next three years.
This has prompted Islamabad to accuse New Dehli of violating global treaties.
Pakistan believes that India will use the flag pole to spy on them.. It was decided that the tricolor flag to be hosted on January 26 but due to some technical reasons the plan was changed.
India said that the the flag was installed 200 metres before the zero line and was not a violation any global treaties or agreements.
