On Saturday, Rahul Gandhi was also joined by his sister Priyanka Gandhi on the walk. She walked alongside Rahul Gandhi until the Yatra stopped for a break at Lethpora in Jammu and Kashmir. The security, understandably, was extremely tight as the Gandhi siblings walked alongside on the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

The Yatra then restarted from Awantipora after the break. There, Rahul Gandhi was joined by the President of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Mehbooba Mufti and her daughter Iltija Mufti. The Bharat Jodo Yatra began from Kanyakumari and will end at Srinagar, covering a total of 3,570 kilometres.
