NEW DELHI, Aug 13(Agencies): Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accepted Governor Satya Pal Malik's 'invitation' to visit Jammu and Kashmir but said he did not need an aircraft.
Gandhi said he and other opposition leaders would visit Jammu and Kashmir and urged Malik to allow them the freedom to meet people, and soldiers.
Gandhi said in a tweet, “Dear Governor Malik, A delegation of opposition leaders & I will take you up on your gracious invitation to visit J&K and Ladakh. We won't need an aircraft but please ensure us the freedom to travel & meet the people, mainstream leaders and our soldiers stationed over there.”
Rahul Gandhi's response came a day after J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik had asked Rahul Gandhi to fly down to the valley and observe the situation himself after the latter claimed that there were instances of violence in Jammu and Kashmir following the abrogation of Article 370.
Congress leader had said, “People were dying in the state and the situation was not normal as claimed by the government.”
