Shared Mohabbat With People Of Ladakh: Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi travelled from Padum to Kargil on his bike.

Rahul wrote 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." 

He wrote further: "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."

Riding on his motorcycle, the Rahul Gandhi reached Kargil town after an overnight stay at Padam in Zanskar Tehsil of Kargil. 

He was accorded a warm welcome by a massive crowd who chanted slogans in praise of "Bharat Jodo" and the Congress leader. 

While interacting with people, Gandhi assured them that he and his party members would become their voice in Parliament and ensure "justice" with them.

The people of Kargil were all praise for the efforts of the Congress leader to safeguard democracy and secularism in the country by exposing "divisive forces and hatemongers". 

Earlier, Gandhi shared several pictures about his journey from Zanskar to Kargil including the one with a group of security personnel on the foothills of a mountain. 

Rahul also went around almost all famous places including Pangong Lake, Nubra Valley, Khardungla top, Lamayuru and Zanskar on the motorcycle during his Ladakh trip which started on August 17 and initially for two days. 

Rahul later extended his tour which Congress termed an extension of Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari to Kashmir from September 7, 2022, to January 30, 2023.

This was the first visit of Gandhi to Ladakh which was granted the status of Union territory after being carved out from Jammu and Kashmir in August 2019.
