Bharat Jodo Yatra in J&K: What Farooq Abdullah Said On Meeting Rahul Gandhi

Kathua (J&K): Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was seen wearing a raincoat for the first time during the Bharat Jodo Yatra. In fact, when the yatra reached the last stop in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua on Friday morning, it was raining there. After a few hours when the rain stopped, he took off his raincoat.

Rahul started his Bharat Jodo Yatra from Hatli Morh in this border district of Jammu and Kashmir on Friday with several prominent leaders, including Shiv Sena (UBT’s) Sanjay Raut also joining Rahul. Speaking on the occasion, Raut told reporters that he had come to attend the yatra because Mr. Gandhi was a leader of the people and was on the right track to raise his voice against unemployment, price rise and other issues troubling the people of the country. .

 Several Congress leaders, including the party’s Jammu and Kashmir unit president Vikar Rasool Wani and his predecessor G A Mir, accompanied Gandhi during the final leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

I have come to share your pain: Rahul

On Thursday evening, before entering Jammu and Kashmir, Rahul said at the Pathankot border, "I know the people here are in pain, I understand that everyone is hurt. Everyone is in trouble. I have come to share your pain." During this, a large number of supporters were present with Rahul.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which started from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on 7 September 2022, reached Jammu and Kashmir on 19 January 2023. In 125 days, Rahul passed through 13 states of the country. He will stay in Jammu and Kashmir for 9 days. The yatra will end on January 30.

Feels like I am back home

Before entering Jammu and Kashmir, Rahul gave a speech at the Pathankot border on Thursday. During this, a large number of supporters were present. Rahul said, "Forefathers went to Uttar Pradesh from Jammu and Kashmir. I am going to the same place. It felt like coming back home. When one goes back to his roots, he talks about himself and the people of his country. I learn a lot."

This country is yours

He said, "Before entering your land, I bow my head. I want to tell you that irrespective of your religion, caste, whether you are rich or poor, young or old, this country is yours. And you belong to this country. Rahul said that for the next 9 days I will only learn from the people of Jammu and Kashmir. I will not say anything to them.

Farooq Abdullah welcomes Gandhi

Meanwhile, National Conference president Farooq Abdullah and senior party leaders travelled in a bus from his Jammu residence to Kathua to welcome Rahul Gandhi at the entry point of Jammu and Kashmir. Welcoming him into the Union Territory, Abdullah compared Rahul to Adi Guru Shankaracharya at an event on Thursday. 

He said that centuries ago Shankaracharya started his journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Rahul is the second person to do this. Rahul Gandhi is trying to unite India.. “Many years ago, Shankaracharya had undertaken a yatra from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. And today you are doing it,” the MP said at a rally. 

He said that today’s India is not that of Ram’s Bharat or Gandhi’s Hindustan because people are divided on religion. “If we are together, we will be able to overcome the hatred of the present day,” he said. The yatra is scheduled to culminate at Srinagar with Rahul Gandhi unfurling the tricolur at the party headquarters on January 30.

BJP-Sangh and the team of millionaires are working together

The Congress leader said, 'The real problems the country is facing are hatred, unemployment, inflation. Apart from this, there are 2 types of India, one of the millionaires and the other of the poor. BJP, Sangh and the team of crorepatis are working together to divert the attention of the country from the main issues. The media is also only raising issues like Hindu-Muslim and hatred.
