Police detain Sena activists trying to hoist national flag in Srinagar

IANS  |  Srinagar 

Police on Wednesday detained a dozen activists in the city centre Lal Chowk. The Sena workers were trying to hoist the national flag.

They shouted slogans against (NC) President Farooq Abdullah.

"If Farooq Abdullah wants to come to power in he should shun speaking the language of the separatists," they said.

The workers had come from Jammu to hoist the flag in response to Abdullah's challenge. The NC chief had said a few days back that it was "not possible to retrieve Pakistan administered part of the state".

He had said that those speaking of liberating the Pakistan administered part should "first try and hoist the national flag at Lal Chowk".
