Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra resumed from Vijaypur in Samba district on Monday morning amid tight security as it headed for Jammu, a couple of hours away. Officials said all necessary arrangements were in place for the yatra, which is scheduled to culminate in Srinagar on January 30 with Gandhi hoisting the national flag at his party headquarters at a mega rally. Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijaya Singh, general secretary Organisation KC Venugopal, former minister Tariq Hamid Karra and former J&K Pradesh Congress Committee president GA Mir along with a large number of party workers and supporters carrying Tricolours joined Gandhi in Vijaypur along the Jammu-Pathankot highway as the march resumed at around 7 am. After covering a distance of 22km on the 129th day of the yatra, the marchers will reach Satwari Chowk in Jammu, where Gandhi will address a gathering before moving to Sidhra for a night halt. Officials said the yatra is progressing smoothly under a tight security cover and had reached Saroor at 8.45 am where it stopped for a tea break. Gandhi who walked wearing his trademark white T-shirt braving the early morning chill, is expected to enter Jammu city limits within the next couple of hours, the official said. As the yatra progressed, Gandhi was cheered on by the public and party workers who waited for him standing on either side of the road. Traffic police have issued a detailed advisory to ensure the smooth movement of traffic on the highway and other link roads in the city.
