Leh (Ladakh) [India]: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi interacted with a group of people on his way from Padum to Kargil on Thursday evening on the last leg of his week-long tour of Ladakh.
He also shared pictures of his interaction with people on his Facebook page.
“Got a chance to interact with many lovely people of Ladakh, on my way from Padum to Kargil shared Mohabbat with them, and received tons of it in return.
Also, met the youth of Kargil and had a conversation with them. The legends of courage and martyrdom from the Kargil war invoke a great sense of pride and inspire us to make sacrifices for the country,” Rahul Gandhi said in a social media post.
Rahul Gandhi arrived in Leh to begin his two-day visit to the Union Territory on August 17 and later decided to extend his tour till August 25.
Earlier Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Monday interacted with Army veterans in the main market here.
During his visit, he also paid tribute to his father and former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, on his 79th birth anniversary from the banks of Pangong Lake in Ladakh on August 20.
Congress and National Conference have forged a pre-poll alliance against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the Kargil council polls scheduled to be held on September 10.
Although the Congress MP visited Srinagar and Jammu twice earlier this year, he, however, did not travel to Ladakh.
In January, the Congress leader visited Jammu and Srinagar during his Bharat Jodo Yatra. Again on a personal visit in February, he visited the Gulmarg ski resort.
