Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be visiting Leh on Friday to meet with youths and discuss issues related to the region. He is also expected to visit the Sonam Wangchuk School, a school that promotes sustainable living.
Gandhi arrived in Leh on Thursday and was received by Congress leaders and workers. He is scheduled to hold an interaction with youths on Friday morning, where he will discuss their concerns about unemployment, education, and development. He is also expected to visit the Sonam Wangchuk School, which is known for its innovative approach to education.
The school was founded by Sonam Wangchuk, an engineer and educationist who is known for his work on solar-powered schools in Ladakh. The school uses traditional methods of teaching and learning, but also incorporates modern technology and practices.
Gandhi’s visit to Leh is his first to the region since 2019. His visit comes at a time when Ladakh is facing a number of challenges, including unemployment, poverty, and climate change.
Gandhi is expected to raise these issues during his visit and to meet with government officials to discuss ways to address them. He is also expected to meet with local people to hear their concerns and suggestions.
Gandhi’s visit is being seen as an opportunity for him to connect with the people of Ladakh and to learn about the challenges they are facing. It is also seen as a way for him to boost the morale of Congress workers in the region.
Gandhi will be in Leh for two days and will return to Delhi on Saturday.
In addition to meeting with youths and visiting the Sonam Wangchuk School, Gandhi is also scheduled to address a public meeting in Leh. He is expected to use the occasion to criticize the government’s handling of the issues facing Ladakh.

What James Prinsep and his 200-year-old map reveal about Gyanvapi
James Prinsep, because of whom the world knows of emperor Ashoka, lived in Varanasi for 10 years. In 1831, the British scholar drew a lithographic map of the old Kashi Vishwanath temple, and showed how Aurangzeb’s Gyanvapi mosque stood on it. That will now be a crucial piece of evidence.
At a walking distance from Kolkata’s Eden Gardens is the Prinsep Ghat on the banks of the Hooghly. One gets a close view of the Vidyasagar Setu and can take a boat ride on the River Hooghly from Prinsep Ghat.
The ghat is named after James Prinsep, a British numismatist and archaeologist, who made significant contributions to India’s historiography. He came to India when he was 28 and was the youngest fellow of the British Asiatic Society.

strong and stable government would lead to rapid development at the domestic level and could place the country as “Vishwa-Mitra” (friend of the world) during the period of upheaval in the global scenario, President Droupadi Murmu said on Wednesday in her last address to the joint session of Parliament ahead of the Lok Sabha elections.
In her almost 90-minute long speech, President Murmu, who listed the achievements of the Narendra Modi-led governments in the last decade, said that January 22, the day the newly constructed Ram temple in Ayodhya was consecrated, was a defining moment.
“There come junctures in the history of civilizations which shape the future for the coming centuries. There have been many such defining moments in the history of India too. This year, on January 22, the country witnessed a similar epochal moment. After waiting for centuries, Ram Lalla has now been enshrined in his grand temple in Ayodhya,” the President said in her address.
