Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is set to end with a mega rally in Srinagar, which is expected to be attended by leaders of around two dozen national parties. The foot march, which started from Kanyakumari in the southern tip of the country in September last year, has covered a distance of about 3,400 kilometers in 125 days.
These blasts in Narwal were preceded by twin blasts in Rajouri, in which seven members of the minority community, including two children, were killed and fourteen others were injured in Upper Dangri village.
