Slamming the Congress party’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, Thakur said that people who want to break India were seen in the Yatra.
“In Bharat Jodo Yatra, people who worked to break India were seen instead of people who united India. They should answer what Congress wants to do with such people,” Thakur said.
Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi - the brother-sister duo – hared some fun and light moments with a snowball fight in Srinagar during the closing ceremony of the Bharat Jodo Yatra. The grand old party conducted its closing ceremony of the 4,080 km foot march by hoisting the national flag at its headquarters in Srinagar.
The ceremony was followed by a rally led by Rahul at the Sher-e-Kashmir Stadium where several opposition leaders joined the Congress leaders to mark the grand culmination of the Bharat Jodo Yatra. The opposition leaders were from DMK, National Conference, PDP, CPI, RSP, and IUML.
