BJP minister Anil Joshi attended the inauguration on Sunday afternoon before the beating the retreat ceremony at Attari-Wagah border in the evening.

Interestingly, it seems Pakistan is not happy with India’s decision to hoist the tricolour at the international border.
As sources said the Pakistan Soldiers had also expressed their concern and asked to the Border Security Force (BSF) and had to install the flag away from the border over fears of spying.
Pakistan on Thursday had again raised an objection to the flag being flown at the IB, calling the act a violation of international treaties.
The Pakistan authorities are in a scare that India could use the mast to keep eyes on Pakistan by installing cameras on the flag pole.
