Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra Culminates

TNI Bureau: Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra culminated in Srinagar amid bone-freezing chill on Monday.

The closing ceremony of the Bharat Jodo Yatra was held at Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket stadium amid tight security and snowfall.

Rahul Gandhi, who set off a national debate when he walked the yatra in a T-shirt in north India’s cold winter, was seen wearing a pheran to ward off snowfall and bone-chilling cold.

The former Congress chief hoisted the flag and the tunes of the national anthem played to mark the culmination of the yatra.
