“For security reasons, we had to temporarily stop the yatra because of poor management of the crowd along the yatra route approved by the security apparatus,” a senior parliament leader said.
He said while people flocked in large numbers to show their love for Rahul Gandhi, there were concerns about the safety of the Congress leader because “people are getting too close to him. “
However, due to poor security management, Rahul’s security forces did not allow him to walk and he took a car to the night stop of the march in Khanabal, the leader of Parliament added.
AICC director Rajni Patil tweeted that J&K authorities were “unable to provide security to Bharat Jodo Yatra due to Shri Rahul Gandhi.
