Meanwhile, a security breach emerged at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra when an unknown man came out of the crowd and embraced Rahul in Tanda in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district.
Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra resumed at Jhingar Khurd village of Hoshiarpur’s Tanda in Punjab on Tuesday. During the yatra, an unknown man rushed in and hugged Rahul Gandhi.
IGP GS Dhillon, Law and Order Wing, Punjab told ANI that it looks like a security breach prima facie.
“It looks like a breach. The video I have seen looks like a security breach. I have walked 100 kms with Rahul Gandhi and we have 300 security men in the ring,” said IGP Dhillon to ANI.
However, the Wayanad MP said the incident should not be termed as a ‘security lapse’ as there is a lot of enthusiasm among the people over the march.
“I could see a person who came to hug me. I do not know why you are calling it a lapse. There is a lot of enthusiasm in this Yatra and it happens. Security people checked him and he was just excited,” Rahul Gandhi said. (ANI)
