Six days after embarking on the Kailash Mansarovar yatra , Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday tweeted an update.
Paying rich tributes to the Mansarovar lake, Mr. Gandhi tweeted: “The waters of lake Mansarovar are so gentle, tranquil and calm. They give everything and lose nothing. Anyone can drink from them. There is no hatred here. This is why we worship these waters in India.”
“A man goes to Kailash when it calls him. I am so happy to have this opportunity and to be able to share what I see on this beautiful journey with all of you,” the 48-year-old Congress chief added, posting two pictures of the lake.
The 48-year-old Congress chief, who calls himself a devotee of Lord Shiva, undertook the pilgrimage to Mount Kailash — considered to be the abode of Lord Shiva — after a plane scare during the Karnataka elections.
In April, while travelling from Delhi to Karnataka, the chartered plane carrying Mr. Gandhi had plunged several hundred feet with violent shuddering but recovered soon and landed safely.
Following an inquiry, the aviation safety regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation in its report noted that the pilots reacted late to an auto-pilot malfunction.
