Mehbooba Mufti Joined The Bharat Jodo Yatra Today
Pulwama/Hyderabad, Jan 28 (Maxim News): People Democratic Party (PDP) Chief Mehbooba Mufti joined the Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo yatra which has resumed today from the Chersoo village in Awantipora after being canceled on Friday due to security reasons.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Congress leader, Ghulam Ahmed Mir brushed off the rumors of people joining the yatra from the other side of the tunnel. (Pakistan side) . He said yesterday, thousands of people wanted to join the yatra and somehow there was mismanagement. It was also said that people from another side of the tunnel came. It’s baseless, the tunnel is 9 km long.” “With the VVIP speed with which Rahul Gandhi came to this side, nobody could have followed him that quickly. They were locals from South Kashmir from the Dooru constituency and were there out of love, he added.
The Congress leader further informed about the large support the yatra enjoyed throughout the country. “The aim of the yatra is very important. The aim of the Yatra was appreciated by the entire country. The people have supported the yatra all through its journey in the 12-13 states. Crores of people were involved in the yatra. People looked at the yatra beyond politics, they were focused on the agenda of the yatra. The citizens wanted someone to address the problems of unemployment, inflation, and the hatred being spread in the country, he said.
Talking about the security during the yatra, he said. “Today forces are present in large numbers. My only appeal is that security should facilitate the people who want to join the yatra. It should not be a yatra of the security forces. People should be able to join.
However, on the day of entering Kashmir (Friday), the yatra was “called off” for the day in view of a security lapse, which triggered heavy criticism by party leaders against the center and Jammu and Kashmir administration for failing to manage the crowd. Rahul Gandhi had to “cancel” the yatra due to an alleged security lapse at Quazigund.
All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary KC Venugopal said that there was no security personnel with the Bharat Jodo yatra for 15 minutes and termed it a serious lapse. (Maxim News)
