Rahul Gandhi unwinds in Kashmir's Gulmarg after Bharat Jodo Yatra | WATCH
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is unwinding on the picturesque ski slopes of Kashmir’s Gulmarg, two weeks after culminating his grueling Bharat Jodo Yatra in erstwhile state’s former summer capital Srinagar on January 30 last month.
Pictures and videos of Gandhi skiing on the slopes of north Kashmir’s winter resort Gulmarg, show the Congress scion wearing a heavy jacket showcasing his skiing skills.
Reports said that Rahul Gandhi had a brief stop in Tangmarg town on his way to Gulmarg where he was spotted wearing his now-trademark T-shirt. The Wayanad MP posed for pictures with locals and the media, however, he politely declined to take questions from the press and instead greeted them with a humble “Namaskar” and left.

Rahul Gandhi also took a ride on the famous Gondola Cable car and went to Affarwat for skiing where he posed for selfies with excited tourists before heading downhill.
The Congress leader was accompanied by his own security personnel and sleuths from the Jammu and Kashmir Police as he pranced down the snowy slopes in the valley’s winter wonderland.
Tourists and locals who took pictures with the Congress scion had nothing praise for Gandhi’s “humble” and “chilled” attitude, saying that the Wayanad MP deserved a vacation “after undertaking the monumental Bharat Jodo Yatra.”
Reports quoting Pradesh Congress Committee sources revealed that Rahul Gandhi is on a personal visit and is likely to attend a private function in the valley, however, the committee turned down any requests asking for details of the Congress MP’s programme in Kashmir valley.
Rahul Gandhi concluded his marathon Bharat Jodo Yatra with the unfurling of the national flag at Srinagar’s Lal Chowk on January 30 followed by a mega rally on the same day.
The Congress had a blast in the valley before wrapping up his marathon trek as he shared a loving moment with Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in Kashmir’s Srinagar city as the brother-sister duo enjoyed a playful snowball fight ahead of yatra mega rally.
