Jammu and Kashmir police on Monday detained Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers who were trying to hoist the national flag  in Lal Chowk, Srinagar. News agency ANI has shared a video which showed the ruling party workers raising slogans of ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and hoisting ‘Tiranga‘ (tricolour) at the clock tower.This comes days after PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti had said that she won’t raise any other flag till the flag of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir is restored. “Our relationship with our national flag is not independent of the flag of the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir. When we get that flag, we will raise the Indian flag as well. Till the time we get back the flag that was robbed from us, we will not raise any other flag,” she told media persons, while addressing a press conference for the first time since being released from 14 months of detention.
