Former army chief General Deepak Kapoor joined ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ led by Rahul Gandhi

Former army chief General Deepak Kapoor and many former senior officers of the defense services on Sunday joined the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra‘ led by Rahul Gandhi, which passes through Haryana.

Amidst bitter winter and fog, the march resumed from Dodwa in Karnal’s Nilokheri region in the morning and entered Kurukshetra district later in the day. Dozens of people joined the Yatra as it passed through Karnal in the morning, which is also the home constituency of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.

Senior party leaders Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Randeep Singh Surjewala and Kumari Selja are part of the Yatra in its Haryana leg.

Congress said on Twitter “Former COAS (Chief of Army Staff) Gen Deepak Kapoor, Lt Gen RK Hooda, Lt Gen VK Narula, AM (Air Marshal) PS Bhangu, Maj Gen Satbir Singh Chaudhary, Maj Gen Dharmender Singh, Col Jitender Gill, Col Pushpender Singh, Lt Gen DDS Sandhu, Maj Gen Bishamber Dayal, Col Rohit Chaudhry join @RahulGandhi on Bharat Jodo Yatra”.

Notably, General Deepak Kapoor (Retd) took over as Chief of Army Staff on 30 September 2007. The march covered over 130 km in its first leg in Haryana from December 21 to 23, passing through Nuh, Gurugram and Faridabad districts. It re-entered Haryana’s Panipat on Thursday evening from Uttar Pradesh.

The jatra, which started from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on September 7, will end after reaching Srinagar by January 30, when Gandhi will hoist the national flag there. The march has so far covered Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh.
