Rahul Gandhi was confronted by a Kashmiri woman who was on-board the same flight in which the delegation of opposition leaders was returning back to Delhi from Srinagar on Saturday.
The inconsolable woman narrated to the Congress leader how the lockdown in Valley since August 5 had caused trouble to the locals. A video of the incident was shared on twitter by Arun Kumar Singh, a reporter with News18 India and has been doing rounds on the microblogging site.
A delegation of opposition parties had gone to Jammu and Kashmir to assess the situation in the valley after the abrogation of article 370. Rahul Gandhi, Ghulam Nabi Azad, D Raja, Sharad Yadav, Manoj Jha, Majeed Memon, and others were part of the delegation and were sent back from the airport.
