New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will not be celebrating his birthday on Friday on account of martyrdom of soldiers in Ladakh and suffering due to Covid, the party said.

The Congress has asked all its units to observe 2 minutes silence in memory of the valiant soldiers.

Meanwhile, the Youth Congress will be distributing Corona NYAY Kits among the neediest people on June 19 in line with the "vision of Rahul Gandhi to help the impoverished in these tough times and to pay tribute to our brave soldiers", its spokesperson Amrish Ranjan Pandey said in a statement.
