Bharat Jodo Yatra: security scare as man tries to hug Rahul Gandhi, pulled away in Punjab's Hoshiarpur

Punjab Police said that it was not a security breach.

A major security scare took place at Congress' Bharat Jodo Yatra on 17 January 2023.

During Rahul Gandhi's march in Punjab's Hoshiarpur, a man ran towards the Congress leader. The man attempted to hug Gandhi, but was pushed away by Congress workers.

He was later taken away from the spot. Punjab Police said that it was not a security breach.

The Congress had last month written to Home Minister Amit Shah, alleging "security breaches" during the Yatra in the national capital and demanded immediate steps to ensure the security of Gandhi and others taking part in the yatra.

Dismissing the allegations, the government had said "full" security arrangements were made for Gandhi in accordance with laid-down guidelines but he himself "violated" security protocols 113 times since 2020.
