Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley arrested in Jammu

Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, Anant Kumar arrested in Jammu today. Senior BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Ananth Kumar were stopped at Jammu airport today amid high drama ahead of the party's move to hoist the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on Republic Day, triggering vehement protests. The three leaders, who arrived here in a chartered plane to throw their weight behind the party's controversial Ekta Yatra, were asked to return to Delhi by a government official who boarded the aircraft with the communication. The leaders were slated to address a rally in the city tomorrow, one of the stops on the BJP's controversial Ekta Yatra that's meant to culminate on Republic Day with the party hoisting the national flag at Lal Chowk. Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley and Ananth Kumar reached Jammu on a chartered plane around 4 pm. They were not allowed to enter the terminal. The Home Minister called them shortly after 6 pm to ask them to return to Delhi - they have refused.
