Half the journey in the car after the input received by the agencies
Rahul Gandhi is in Punjab for the next 10 days. His journey here is about 350 km. But more than half of his journey will go in the car. The main reason behind this is the inputs being received by security agencies from Khalistani organizations in Punjab.
Apart from this, many pro-Khalistan organizations like Gurpatwant Singh Pannu have repeatedly raised pro-Khalistani slogans in Punjab and threatened Rahul Gandhi not to come to Punjab.
