Sushma, Jaitley brought to Punjab from Jammu

The leaders were transported in separate vehicles by officials of the Jammu and Kashmir government. A large number of BJP workers and leaders, including Punjab Industry Minister Manoranjan Kalia, Transport Minister Mohan Lal, Lok Sabha MP Navjot Singh Sidhu and Punjab BJP President Ashwani Sharma, welcomed the leaders at the Ravi Bridge at Madhopur.

The BJP leaders will address a party rally at Pathankot before the Ekta Yatra of the party led by Youth Wing President Anurag Thakur proceed to Lakanpur in Jammu and Kashmir. Interacting with media persons, Swaraj and Jaitely said that they have been wrongly detained at Jammu airport on the pretext of Section 144 Crpc (prohibitory orders).

"We did not come for a Satyagraha. We have come for Tiranga Yatra. Wont give up. Come what may...We will enter J&K again," Sushma tweeted. "Just dumped on J&K-Punjab border. This place is called Madhopur," she said.

Swaraj said that she, Jaitely and Anant Kumar will again lead BJP workers to enter J and K tomorrow. "If we had our say we will reach Lal Chowk at Srinagar on January 26 with large number of peoples to hoist the National flag," she added.

Jaitely said that the situation in J and K today is worst than it was 1953 when ONE a permit to enter J and K. "Today you can physically pickup people and throw them out of the state," he said. He described the Jammu and Kashmir's action against them as "unprecedented and undemocratic."
Jaitely said "I don't know whether there is any rule of law left in the country and in this state. There is absoutely no law." He said the Yuva Morcha is determined to proceed ahead with the yatra.
