Bharat Jodo Yatra: Rahul Gandhi unfurls tricolour at Srinagar's Lal Chowk | India News

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday unfurled the national flag at Lal Chowk in Srinagar as part of the ongoing ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra‘, amid high security measures.
Rahul took a 30-minute break from the Kanyakumari to Kashmir foot march at Sonawar to visit the Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee headquarters on Maulana Azad Road before heading to the clock tower, also known as ‘Ghanta Ghar‘.

He was joined by his sister and Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and local party leaders.
All India Congress Committee general secretary, in-charge communications, Jairam Ramesh on Twitter said the flag unfurling was planned for Monday but had to be done a day earlier.

“@RahulGandhi was supposed to unfurl national flag on Jan 30th in PCC office, since permission to do so elsewhere wasn’t given. Last evening, state administration allowed him to do so in Lal Chowk, but under condition that it should be done today on 29th at end of #BharatJodoYatra,” Ramesh tweeted.
