Farooq Abdullah to join Congress Bharat Jodo Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir
National Conference Chairman Farooq Abdullah on Tuesday said he would join the Congress Bharat Jodo Yatra at the entry point to Jammu and Kashmir, saying maintaining the unity and integrity of the country was the need of the hour.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi leads the Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari in Kashmir.
“As soon as he reaches Lakhanpur, where Jammu and Kashmir begins, I will go there and join Rahul Gandhi. We will march together for the unity and integrity of this nation,” Mr Abdullah told PTI from New Delhi.
He added that it is the need of the hour to remain united.
The former chief minister is currently in New Delhi for a parliamentary committee meeting and is expected to return to Jammu.
Congress has dubbed the yatra as “India’s largest mass contact program”.
