Jammu, Jan 24 (Agencies): The Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha’s Rashtriya Ekta Yatra, which will end with the flag hoisting at Lal Chowk in Srinagar on the Republic Day, has created a political ruckus in the Valley thereby forcing the Omar Abdullah Government to maximise security across the state.

The BJP has refused to bow down and has insisted on hoisting the tricolour in the Valley on the January 26, the party leaders including Arun Jaitley are scheduled to reach Jammu on Monday. The top leadership of the BJP have threatened to court arrest after J&K CM Omar Abdullah ordered restricted entry into the state.

Meanwhile, Omar Abdullah is scheduled to meet the Home Minister P Chidambaram on the security arrangements in view of the massive BJP yatra that is headed towards the state. Opposition leader Mehbooba Mufti is also likely to be a part of that meet.

However, the BJP is determined to hoist the national flag in Lalchowk on the 26th of January. BJP maintained that hoisting the national flag was its sovereign right even as it raised fresh questions on UPA government's stand on Jammu and Kashmir being an integral part of India.

"We are committed to a peaceful Ekta Yatra and we are going ahead with our programme (to hoist the national flag at Lal Chowk).... political parties have a right to hoist the national flag," Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha Arun Jaitley told reporters.

He maintained that the government was objecting to hoisting of the national tricolour but had allowed separatists to air their views in the name of free speech.
