She said that Gandhi was scheduled to visit Jammu, Kashmir and Ladakh earlier last month but could not spare the so many days in one go, due to preoccupations during the parliamentary session.
He visited for two days to Srinagar last month during which he visited the holy shrines of Mata Khir Bhawani and Hazaratbal, besides holdings interactions with the party leaders and activists.
JKPCC Chief G A Mir said that Rahul Gandhi will take the feedback from the ground about the state of affairs and the feelings of people after disbanding and downgrading of the historical state into UT and current spell of central rule. (UNI)
