Anantnag- There was no security lapse at the Bharat Jodo Yatra, a senior Jammu and Kashmir police official said on Friday while stressing that the organisers had not informed the police about a large crowd joining the march from Banihal.
“The Jammu and Kashmir police was not consulted before the Bharat Jodo Yatra was discontinued. We will provide foolproof security (to the yatra),” Additional Director General of Police Vijay Kumar, who is in charge of security in Kashmir Valley, said in a statement.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said he had to call off his walk on Friday because police arrangements “unfortunately completely collapsed” when the yatra crossed Banihal into Qazigund in the Valley through the Jawahar tunnel.
