Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, who is leading the 'Bharat Jodo Yatra', reached Jammu from Punjab on Thursday for the last leg of his journey. Till now Rahul Gandhi was seen marching in North India wearing only a T-shirt in the severe winter, but today for the first time he was seen in a jacket. It has been drizzling since morning in many parts of Jammu, which is why Rahul Gandhi finally wore warm clothes. Later he was also seen taking off his jacket and walking in his signature white T-shirt.
During the 125-day yatra so far, Rahul Gandhi has covered 3,400 kms. During this, Rahul Gandhi's wearing only a T-shirt aroused curiosity, even praise and sarcasm from the opposition parties. He said that if he feels cold, he will wear more clothes, which has not happened so far. The 52-year-old Congress leader is set to hoist the national flag at Banihal in Jammu and Kashmir's Ramban district on January 25 and enter Srinagar via Anantnag two days later on January 27.
Bharat Jodo Yatra started this morning from Hatli Mor in Kathua. The yatra was heavily guarded by both police and paramilitary forces. Jammers have also been installed. NDTV has learned that Rahul Gandhi was earlier advised by security agencies not to walk in certain parts during the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Kashmir.
As soon as Rahul Gandhi entered Jammu, he was greeted with a grand welcome by top Kashmiri leader and National Conference President Farooq Abdullah. During this, Rahul Gandhi said that he has returned to connect with his roots. He talked about the "pain and suffering" of the residents here.
