Jammu: Rahul Gandhi asks Congress workers to chant Jai Mata Di, watch

Gandhi described his visit as homecoming saying his family had a long relationship with the state.

Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who is on a two-day visit to Jammu, addressed party workers on Friday and urged them to chant Jai Mata Di. Addressing the rally, the 51-year-old described his visit as homecoming, saying his family had a long relationship with the state.

Me and my family are also Kashmiri Pandits. I want to tell all my Kashmiri Pandit brothers that I will show you my help. Whenever I say something, it is not me but the worker of the Congress party. Today when I met some Kashmiri Pandits, they said the BJP had promised them compensation but they were not given any, the Indian National Congress tweeted from its official Twitter handle.

The Congress leader said the BJP-RSS combine were trying to break the composite culture of Jammu and Kashmir. He demanded that the government restore the statehood of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Wayanad MP had also travelled to the Vaishno Devi shrine from Katra on foot on Thursday. In the videos, the Congress MP was seen walking briskly alongside pilgrims on the 14-km stretch leading to the shrine, surrounded by security personnel.

I have come here to offer prayers. I don’t want to make any political comments here, Rahul Gandhi told reporters who chased him to the shrine.

This is his second visit to Jammu and Kashmir since the abrogation of Article 370 in August 2019, which gave special status to the former state. Jammu and Kashmir was divided into two territories.

However, the critics have pointed the Congress leader’s display of religiosity ahead of general elections with moves such as temple visits and disclosures by aides of his Brahmin ancestry.
