Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is going to spend eight days during the concluding phase of the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ in Jammu and Kashmir, Senior party leader and Rajya Sabha member Rajni Patil said on Saturday.

Patil, AICC in-charge J-K affairs, said Gandhi is expected to enter the Union Territory in the third week of next month and appealed to the people as well as political, social and NGOs to “join the yatra which is above politics and meant to unite hearts for the benefit of the nation”.

“Gandhi is going to spend eight days in Jammu and Kashmir — four days each in Jammu and the valley — after reaching here in the third week of January. The date and route were not finalised so far,” Patil, flanked by senior party leaders including J-K Pradesh Congress Committee president Vikar Rasool Wani, told reporters here.
