Bharat Jodo Yatra enters UP, security beefed up

Starting from Kanyakumari on September 7, the Yatra has so far travelled over 3,000 kms

NEW DELHI: Security was tightened from Delhi’s Kashmere Gate to Ghaziabad’s Loni as Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra resumed in the national capital before entering neighbouring Uttar Pradesh.

Police personnel were deployed in large numbers and barricades were erected at several places to ensure a smooth passage for those taking part in the yatra.

After the first leg of the yatra in Delhi, Congress alleged “security breaches” during the march and demanded immediate steps to ensure Gandhi’s security.

However, government officials had said that “full” security arrangements were made for the Congress leader in accordance with laid-down guidelines but he himself “violated” security protocols 113 times since 2020.
