Jammu, Jan 25: BJP is facing opposition from all quarters over their proposed move to hoist the national flag in Lal Chowk on Republic Day. Over 400 BJP activists were arrested today (Jan 25) when they tried to bring out a rally in the city as part of their plan to hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Republic Day tomorrow (Jan 26), police said.

The Jammu and Kashmir authorities has imposed a blanket ban on the BJP rally to avoid any untoward incident in the state.

Raising anti-government slogans, the activists clashed with police and smashed window panes and doors of some structures as they were prevented from criss-crossing the city.

Yesterday, JK Police had arrested over 1,300 BJP activists from across the state, including 1,000 from two Jammu-bound trains at Vijaypur Railway station in Samba.
