Srinagar: Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is about to conclude. Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra recalled a message sent by his elder brother, Rahul Gandhi, and a senior party leader before he entered Kashmir, in which he described having a “special feeling of going home.”
Speaking at a ceremony in Srinagar to commemorate the end of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra stated that people supported Rahul Gandhi’s nearly five-month-long foot march wherever he went because “there still remains a passion in this country for this land and its diversity.”
“My brother walked by foot from Kanyakumari for 4-5 months. Everywhere the caravan went, people showed up to support them. Why? “Because there is still love in this nation for its diversity that resides in the hearts of all Indians,” she said.
The rally organised by the Congress was held at the Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket Stadium in the presence of tight security and heavy snowfall. Rahul Gandhi was joined by party president Mallikarjun Karge and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and leaders from the DMK, JMM, BSP, NC, PDP, CPI, RSP, VCK, and IUML.
Omar Abdullah, former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir and leader of the National Conference (NC), advised Rahul Gandhi to start another foot march from the west to the east of the country. He wished to walk with Rahul.
Abdullah congratulated Rahul on his remarkable efforts. He, along with his father and party workers, wished Rahul success on the completion of the yatra. “This yatra made it clear that people in the country like the BJP, but there are people of other ideas as well, which are of brotherhood,” he said.
