Bharat Jodo Yatra: Rahul Gandhi’s security cordon simply vanished, says Omar Abdullah; J&K police claim didn’t know of such large gathering



Omar Abdullah joined Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra from Banihal in Kashmir on Friday

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Friday alleged that he’s witness that outer ring of the cordon maintained by the Jammu and Kashmir police “simply vanished” minutes after Rahul Gandhi marched into Kashmir with his Bharat Jodo Yatra via Banihal earlier today.

The former J&K chief minister wrote in a tweet he was looking forward to the 11-kilometre trek but unfortunately it had to be cancelled.

The yatra was stopped earlier today near Qazigund, the gateway to Kashmir valley, due to an alleged breach of security and mismanagement of crowd by the erstwhile state’s administration.

Congress leaders alleged that Rahul Gandhi after crossing Qazigund, started his march towards south Kashmir’s Vessu, but the party workers noticed that the outer cordon maintained by the Jammu and Kashmir police, was lifted all of a sudden.

However, the J&K Police has refuted the allegations of a security lapse. In a series of tweets, the police claimed that organizers of the march had not told them that such a large gathering would be joining them from Banihal and full security arrangements were in place and deployments were done as per SOPs.

The police added that they were not consulted by organizers before halting the yatra, stressing that rest of the march went peacefully and maintained that foolproof security will be provided when the trek resumes.

Earlier, the Congress temporarily called off the yatra, accusing the local police and administration of crowd mismanagement and security lapse.

A senior Congress leader alleged that there was crowd mismanagement along the yatra route approved by the security apparatus.

Rahul Gandhi, who has planned to conclude his marathon Bharat Jodo Yatra with a grand rally in Srinagar on January 30 said that it was the responsibility of the Jammu and Kashmir administration to provide them security while hoping that rest of the yatra is provide with adequate security.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said that the party is holding discussions with the Jammu and Kashmir administration to ensure no further security lapses occur for the remainder of the march.
