Bharat Jodo: Amid security concerns, J&K admin mulls ‘restrictions’

Early Times Report

Jammu, Jan 18: Even as the Bharat Jodo Yatra is scheduled to reach its last leg of the marathon yatra, which started from Kerala and will end in Jammu and Kashmir, the J&K administration is mulling “restrictions” on the movement of the Yatra for its safe journey enroute.
Sources said in the wake of security concerns in terror infested Jammu and Kashmir, the administration may have to “impose restrictions” to ensure safety of the Congress leadership including Rahul Gandhi.
It was reliably learnt that Rahul Gandhi, who is leading the Yatra may have to drive down some areas of the journey enroute in the bulletproof vehicle.
The sources said given the spike in terror incidents in Jammu region in particular, the security grid doesn’t want to take any chances.
It was reliably learnt that apart from the Jammu and Kashmir Police additional companies of the paramilitary forces would be deployed enroute.
There were recent reports of security breach in the yatra. The incident took place in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district. A video showed a person running towards Rahul and hugging him before being pushed back immediately by his security. A second incident of an alleged security breach took place near the village of Bassi.
The video of man entering Rahul Gandhi’s security ring emerged on the sixth day of the Punjab leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, the Congress leader asked why people were calling it a lapse. “Why are you calling it a lapse … Someone came to hug me. It’s not a lapse … sometimes people are over-excited… I wouldn’t call it a security lapse,” Rahul said during a press conference when the yatra halted at Ghaunspur village.
After spending six days in Punjab, the Rahul Gandhi-led ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ entered Himachal Pradesh on January 18.
After the march entered the state near Ghatota village, Punjab Congress president Amrinder Singh Raja handed over the flag to Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu and state Congress chief Pratibha Singh. CM Sukhu and Pratibha Singh thanked Gandhi for including the hill state in the yatra, which was initially not included in the scheduled itinerary.
