"It broke my heart...," Rahul Gandhi in 'Motorcycle Diaries'

New Delhi | Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday shared glimpses of his recent visit to Ladakh through his motorcycle diary saying that it broke his heart to see a sense of betrayal by Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he lied about China not occupying our land.

"Ladakh is one of India's crown jewels, and one of the world's most important strategic locations. It broke my heart to see a sense of betrayal in the eyes of the people of Ladakh. They felt betrayed by the Prime Minister when he lied about China not occupying our land," sharing the video of his journey titled ‘Motorcycle Diaries’: Listening to Ladakh, on YouTube, Rahul Gandhi said.

He further said that they felt betrayed by the BJP government when it failed to fulfil any of the promises it made to them. A government must empower all its people, and Ladakh needs good governance.

The Congress leader further said, "My father once told me that Pangong Tso Lake is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. I've always yearned to go to Ladakh, to witness the majestic views, listen to the people, understand their problems, and share their happiness."

As I continued on my Bharat Jodo Yatra, I thought to myself, what better way to visit Ladakh than on a motorcycle! And so began this epic journey, he added.

He recalled the experience of his visit to Ladakh and said that, "Flanked by my fellow bike riders, I experienced one of the most exhilarating journeys of my life on my bike. The 1000+ kilometers we rode were filled with pure adrenaline and camaraderie."

I saw great potential in these youngsters, to think outside the box and not

be afraid to push the boundaries, he said.

Recalling the meeting with the people Rahul said, "In every village and town we passed by, from Leh to Kargil, we were embraced by the incredible Ladakhi people. They are humble, empathetic, and resilient. Their wisdom about Ladakh is unmatched, and any plan for the future development of the region must be based on their inputs. Without hesitation, I can say, the most beautiful part about Ladakh is its people."

He further added that it was inspiring to revel in the spirit of patriotism with our Ex-servicemen, on-duty Army and Police personnel, the BRO officers and workers whom I met during this journey. They are the brave sons of our Bharat Mata.

I will do everything I can to amplify the democratic voice of Ladakh, he added.

Congress leader visited Ladakh for over eight days from August 17 to 25 and visited Leh, Pangong Tso Lake area, Kargil and many other parts of Ladakh.

He also paid tribute to his father and former Prime Minister, Rajiv Gandhi, on his 79th birth anniversary from the banks of Pangong Lake in Ladakh.
