Scores of Shiv Sena activists took out a march here today against the detention of some party workers in Srinagar where they had gone to hoist the national flag at Lal Chowk. Workers of the the Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) also staged a demonstration against the detention. Six activists of the Shiv Sena were detained briefly in Srinagar yesterday as police thwarted their bid to hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk. Raising slogans against the BJP government at the Centre and the BJP-PDP government in the state, Shiv Sena activists took out the protest rally here. Shiv Sena leader Manish Sawhney said, "Every Indian citizen has the right to hoist tricolour in any part of the country but the governments led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti not only prevented us from hoisting the tricolour in Srinagar but also detained our activists.
