I represent Rahul Ji: Soz

Kargil, Jan 7: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is keen to bring Kargil on the tourist map of the country, Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Chief Prof Saif-ud-din Soz said Monday.
 Addressing a gathering of people here, Soz said Rahul is “very interested in getting the beautiful valley of Kargil and its adjoining valleys on the tourist map of India and in strengthening air, telecommunication and road connectivity to the region as early as possible.”
 Soz said he is in Kargil during the launch of Mantra Airline service to the region as Rahul's representative.
 “Rahul Ji has said Kargil is beautiful. Omar Abdullah is already working on those lines. Both Omar and I would take Rahul Ji’s help to improve and strengthen connectivity to Kargil region and for its overall development,” he said.
 Soz, an MP and former Union Minister, said, “I represented Rahul in the inaugural flight to and fro Kargil operated by Air Mantra.” “It was a historic moment to address the gathering in the snow-clad Kargil Airport in minus 17 degree Celsius in company of the  Chief Minister and some of his cabinet colleagues.”
