KEDARNATH SHRINE BY FOOT.
Rahul Gandhi,Vice President
of the Congress Party will trek
the 21 Km route by foot to the
shrine and attend the temple's
Kapat (portals)opening ceremony.
Ms.Ambika Soni AICC General secretary
in charge of Uttarakhand & state Congress President,Kishore
Upadhyay will accompany Rahul to the shrine.
This visit to the temple may assume political significance as the Congress party is working out new strategy to counter BJP after its drubbing in the Lok Sabha elections.
The majority of Congressmen started believing that the Congress party's aggressive
pro minority's stance has proved counter productive. Further, A.K.Antony senior
congressman openly suggested that proximity to minority communities had led
people to doubt its secular credentials.
