President Kovind to visit Leh tomorrow

President Ram Nath Kovind will visit Jammu and Kashmir tomorrow to present the Presidential Colours, a rare military honour, to all five Ladakh Scouts Battalions and Ladakh Scouts Regimental Centre at Leh.
On the same day, he will also visit the Mahabodhi International Meditation Centre at Leh before returning to Delhi.
The visit has become significant as it is taking place amid the stand-off between Indian and Chinese troops in Doklam and just days after they clashed in the Ladakh region.
During his day-long visit, Mr Kovind will present the Presidential Colours to the infantry unit of the 14 Corps in recognition of its exceptional service.
The last time any President visited Ladakh was in September 2010, when Ms Pratibha Patil travelled to the strategic region.
