Rahul Gandhi accepts J&K invite, says no to helicopter

Deccan Chronicle

New Delhi: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday took up Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik's bait of sending a helicopter for him to visit the Valley, but said he didn't need an aircraft, just the freedom for him along with other Opposition leaders to be allowed to travel unimpeded across the Valley

The Congress also asked the government to immediately begin a political dialogue and take all Opposition parties into confidence on what was happening in the region.

Mr Malik had on Monday invited Mr Gandhi to visit J&K, saying he would send an aircraft for him, after the Congress leader said: 'People were dying in the Valley and the situation is not normal, as the government claims.'
