Anantnag: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Friday said that the police system in Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district had collapsed during the 'Bharat Jodo Yatra', following which he canceled today's yatra on the advice of his security personnel. Talking to reporters here, he also said that this should not happen on Saturday and Sunday in this yatra and related functions.
Rahul Gandhi told reporters, 'It was a wonderful reception from the people. People had gathered since morning and we were eager to travel. The policemen, who live near the security cordon during the yatra, are gone or not seen. It is unfortunate that the police system has completely collapsed.
He said, 'My security people became uncomfortable with this and they said that I should not travel further. So I had to cancel my Yatra today. Others continued.' Rahul Gandhi said, 'It is the responsibility of the administration to guarantee the role of the police. It is very difficult for me to go against the suggestions of people engaged in my security.' The Congress leader said, 'I don't know why this happened. But this should not happen tomorrow and the day after.' In response to a question, he said that he would go on a padyatra. The 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' started on 7th September from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu. It will end on January 30 in Srinagar.
