Jammu and Kashmir leg of Cong’s Bharat Jodo Yatra begins, Sanjay Raut joins march

Kathua:

The Bharat Jodo Yatra started its Jammu and Kashmir leg from this border district on a rainy Thursday morning with Sanjay Raut of the Shiv Sena (UBT) among those joining Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in the march. Gandhi donned a black raincoat over his now trademark white T-shirt for the yatra, which was scheduled to start at 7 am but could begin only after 8.15 am.

The march, which started from Kanyakumari on September 7, entered Jammu and Kashmir from Punjab on Thursday evening and is scheduled to end in Srinagar on January 30.

Several Congress leaders, including the party’s Jammu and Kashmir unit president Vikar Rasool Wani and his predecessor G A Mir, accompanied Gandhi during the final leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
