Cong leaders meet LG; discuss security arrangements for Bharat Jodo Yatra
Jammu: Senior Congress leaders met Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha on Monday to discuss security arrangements for the Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra which will enter the Union territory next month.
Congress general secretary organisation K C Venugopal, AICC in-charge for Jammu and Kashmir Rajani Patil, and party leaders Vikar Rasool Wani and Ghulam Ahmad Mir met Sinha and sought the administration’s cooperation for the yatra.
The Kanyakumari-to-Kashmir yatra, which has so far traversed more than 2,800 km through 10 states, is on a nine-day winter break and will resume on January 3. It started from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on September 07 and is likely to conclude in Srinagar by January-end.
“Bharat Jodo Yatra is marching towards its final destination – J&K. Held a meeting today with the Lt. Governor of J&K Shri Manoj Sinha ji along with senior party leaders. Discussed the security arrangements and sought the cooperation of the administration,” Venugopal tweeted after the meeting with Sinha.
He also shared a picture of the Congress leaders meeting with Sinha.
Jammu and Kashmir Congress working president Raman Bhalla was also present during the meeting.
