Sidhu Moose Wala’s Father Joins Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra In Punjab. Watch

New Delhi: Late singer Sidhu Moose Wala’s father Balkaur Singh joined Congress leader Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra as it resumed from the Khalsa College Ground Jalandhar on Sunday.

As the foot march resumed around 3pm on Sunday, Balkaur Singh walked with Rahul Gandhi for some distance, news agency PTI reported.

“Today #BharatJodoYatra Balkaur Singh Sidhu ji, father of famous Punjabi singer Late Sidhu Moose Wala, along with @RahulGandhi ji gave a befitting reply to the forces spreading hatred, fear and violence. Sidhu Moose Wala was murdered in broad daylight in Mansa, Punjab,” the Congress tweeted along with a video of Balkaur Singh and Gandhi.

Notably, Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead in Punjab’s Mansa district on May 29 last year. Goldy Brar, a Canada-based member of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang, had claimed responsibility for the murder. Last month, Brar was detained by the US authorities.

The Congress leader also offered prayers at Devi Talab temple in Jalandhar before the Bharat Jodo Yatra resumed.

Punjab Congress president Amrinder Singh Raja Warring, Leader of Opposition in the state assembly Partap Singh Bajwa, former chief minister Charanjit Singh Channi, MLA Pargat Singh and other party leaders were among the ones who took part in the foot march. The yatra will halt for the night in Adampur.

It is to be noted that the Bharat Jodo Yatra was suspended for 24 hours in view of the death of Congress MP Santokh Singh Chaudhary on Saturday. Chaudhary died after suffering a cardiac arrest during the foot march.

Earlier, the yatra took a break on Friday on the occasion of Lohri. The Punjab leg of Bharat Jodo Yatra began from Sirhind in Fatehgarh Sahib on Wednesday.

Bharat Jodo Yatra, which kicked off from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on September 7, will conclude in Srinagar by January 30.
