Three senior BJP leaders- Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj and Ananth Kumar were taken into custody by police in Jammu Monday night and were taken to Madhopur in Punjab on the border with J&K, BJP sources said.
They were taken into custody after a nearly six-hour high drama at Jammu airport where they were kept locked to prevent them joining the party’s Ekta Yatra to hoist the national flag in Srinagar on Jan 26, which the state government has disallowed.
Sushma Swaraj tweeted that they will enter J&K again. “We did not come for a Satyagraha. We have come for Tiranga Yatra. Won’t give up. Come what may,” she tweeted.
Meanwhile, J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah was chairing a high level meeting of the security forces to deal with the situation.
There are reports of many BJP leaders and workers having sneaked into Jammu to hold protests.
