At the conclusion of the visit, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra along with Rahul Gandhi enjoyed the snowfall in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir and during this there was a ‘sheen war’ between the two sisters. Snow is called ‘sheen’ in Kashmiri and throwing snow at each other while playing is called ‘sheen jang’. There was heavy snowfall in the valley on Monday, the last day of the yatra. During this, other Congress leaders were also with him.
Concluding the yatra, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said in Kashmir, “The Kashmiriyat of our family spread the Ganga-Jamuni culture from Sangam. My family had gone from Kashmir towards the Ganges. Our house is on the banks of the Sangam in Allahabad. When I was coming here, I felt that I was coming to my home. The people of our family mixed Kashmiriyat with the Ganges. Spread that feeling in Uttar Pradesh which is called Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb. With this, he said that his thinking was taught to him by Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh. Where Hinduism, Islam and Buddhism – all ideologies reside.
