Welcomed by hundreds of individuals holding the Congress flag and shouting slogans of “Jodo, jodo Bharat jodo” and “Chhodo, chhodo nafrat chodo”, Rahul Gandhi might cowl barely a kilometre of his Bharat Jodo Yatra after coming into Kashmir Friday, earlier than it was known as off for the day, attributable to an alleged safety breach.
The Congress accused the police of failing to make sure satisfactory safety for Rahul and others, a cost denied by the officers. They claimed the get together leaders had deserted the Yatra with out consulting the police.
Since I wrote my final column on the Bharat Jodo Yatra in mid-November 2022, when Rahul Gandhi was strolling in Maharashtra, he has lined many many extra kilometres, lined the northern states the place, opposite to what his opponents had predicted, he has drawn an excellent response.
Since his 3560-km-long Bharat Jodo Yatra is scheduled to finish January 30 in Srinagar, it’s time to evaluate its impression.
As Rahul Gandhi enters the Kashmir Valley on the final leg of his 3,570-km Bharat Jodo Yatra, the Peoples Democratic Celebration (PDP) has been on the forefront, welcoming the march, with its employees instructed to actively take part in it.
PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti even wrote an article in The Hindu, calling the Congress yatra the “first and real outreach to the folks of J&Ok, who’ve been threatened into silence and submission”.
Behind the PDP’s enthusiasm is the realisation that the coalition authorities it fashioned with the BJP in 2015 nonetheless casts a shadow over it in Jammu and Kashmir, and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is just not going to show into an Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who remains to be broadly regarded in Kashmir for his name for a “therapeutic contact” for the Valley.
