SRINAGAR Bad weather on Friday prevented President Ram Nath Kovind from visiting the Drass war memorial in Ladakh region and he instead arrived in Srinagar to pay tributes to soldiers who laid down their lives in the 1999 Kargil war, officials said here.
“Due to bad weather, the President is not going to Drass for wreath-laying at the war memorial. Now the President will lay a wreath at the war memorial at Badamibagh cantonment here,” an Army official said.
