Congress leader Rahul Gandhi takes up governor's offer to come and see for himself, says no conditions attached.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday repeated his demand to visit Jammu and Kashmir and asked Governor Satya Pal Malik when he could come.
He said he had accepted Malik's invitation to visit J&K and meet people without any conditions and termed the governor's reply 'feeble.'
"Dear Maalik (sic) ji, I saw your feeble reply to my tweet.
"I accept your invitation to visit Jammu & Kashmir and meet the people, with no conditions attached. When can I come?" he said.
On Tuesday, Malik had lashed out at Rahul Gandhi for putting 'pre-conditions' for a visit to Kashmir Valley and alleged he was trying to 'create unrest' by seeking to bring a delegation of opposition leaders.
Following remarks by Gandhi that there have been reports of violence in Kashmir, Malik had said on Monday he would send him an aircraft to visit the Valley and observe the ground situation.
Rahul Gandhi has put forth many conditions for the visit, including meeting mainstream leaders under detention, the governor said in a statement.
Hitting back at the governor for making a U-turn, the Congress leader said he should stand by his word.
