Hyderabad, Aug 11: Gujarat Chief Minister and chief of the BJP's campaign committee for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections slammed the UPA government over the detention of party leader Arun Jaitley and other Opposition leaders in Jammu to stop them from proceeding Kishtwar where curfew was imposed following a communal violence on Friday.
Modi said in his tweet that the detention was undemocratic and it showed that the government does not want the true story behind the Kishtwar violence to come out.

Modi visited Hyderabad on Sunday morning to address a mega youth rally at the Lal Bahadur Shastri Stadium, which will kick off the BJP's campaign for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Party leaders predict over a lakh people turning out at the event to lend ears to Modi. The BJP has charged Rs 5 for a ticket for the rally and said the funds thus raised will be used for relief for the flood-affected people in Uttarakhand.
