SRINAGAR — Senior Congress leader and Lok Sabha member, Rahul Gandhi arrived here on Wednesday on a ‘personal visit’.
Congress sources said that Rahul Gandhi will leave for Gulmarg ski resort immediately after his arrival in Srinagar. “He will spend a few days in Gulmarg during his personal visit,” sources said.
His arrival comes just two weeks after he concluded his Bharat Jodo Yatra in Srinagar on January 30 in which the leaders from various political parties participated at the SK Stadium rally here.
His security arrived in Gulmarg on Tuesday and installed CCTV cameras at Hotel Khyber where he is staying for four nights.
It is in place to mention here that this visit of Rahul Gandhi, as per Congress sources, is purely a personal visit as he wants to take some time off from his busy schedule. “This visit is personal and has nothing to do with any official or party activity,” a local Congress leader said on the condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, sources said Rahul Gandhi may also be joined by former J&K chief minister Omar Abdullah during his visit to Gulmarg.
