On Friday, January 27, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said he had to cancel his walk for the day in Kashmir because police arrangements by the Jammu and Kashmir administration ‘unfortunately completely collapsed.’.
Rahul, who began his yatra from Banihal in Jammu region, crossed the Jawahar tunnel into the Kashmir Valley in Qazigund in a bulletproof vehicle but could walk for barely 500 metres after that.
He was asked by his security team to stop given the absence of police personnel to manage the large crowd that had gathered to receive him.
Rahul was supposed to walk 11 km to Vessu before halting for the night at the Khanabal dak bungalow in Anantnag district.
