Over 25000 People likely To Converge At SK cricket Stadium On Monday

Srinagar- A gathering of around 25,000 people is expected to converge at the Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket Stadium here on Monday where former congress president, Rahul Gandhi will address a public rally on the conclusion of his Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Party insiders told said on Saturday that over 25000 people including those from the“like minded” parties are likely to attend the Rahul mega show at SK stadium here on Monday.

Interestingly, this will be the first massive public gathering in Kashmir Valley after the abrogation of J&K's semi-autonomous status in August 2019. The Yatra, so far, has witnessed overwhelming response from the people of the Valley with men, women, kids and youth marching with Congress leaders.

Coordinator of Bharat Jodo Yatra, Ghulam Amad Mir told Kashmir Observer that Gandhi will hoist the national flag in Lal Chowk and his party is in touch with the administration to seek permission for the same.

He said the leaders from around 23 opposition parties are set to join Gandhi in the SK stadium where he will address the gathering.“Apart from congress workers, the general public including women and youth are likely to attend the gathering,” he said.

Defending senior party leader Jairam Ramesh's comments that BJY will not discuss political issues of Jammu and Kashmir like abrogation of Article 370 and PAGD, Mir said that Yatra was meant for connecting people of the country and the party has limited the yatra on this issue only.

“Every state has different political issues, we can discuss it on other platforms but this yatra was meant for different issues,” Mir added.

He further said that Congress has made their stand on the abrogation of Article-370 very clear and they will never change it.
