Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir unit of Shiv Sena (Bala Sahib Thackeray) said Tuesday that it would hoist the tri-colour in Lal Chowk, the nerve centre of summer capital Srinagar, shortly.
The outfit was reacting to a controversial statement by National Conference president Farooq Abdullah who dared the Centre to hoist the national flag at Lal Chowk before talking about unfurling it in the Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK).
The outfit’s state chief Dimpy Kohli said the time was not too far when the tricolour would be hoisted in PaK as well.
In a controversial statement, former Chief Minister Abdullah yesterday had said, “They (centre and BJP) are talking about raising the flag in PoK. I ask them first you go and raise the tricolour at Lal Chowk in Srinagar. They can t even do that here and they are talking about PoK”.
Abdullah had said this while defending his earlier comment that PaK did not belong to India. PTI
