"It has been raining hard in Bhaderwah and adjoining areas since last night," Reshu added.
Rahul along with Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad was scheduled to visit the Bhaderwah and Kishtwar on Saturday to take stock of the situation in the area, that had been hit by minor tremors since May 1.
Rahul, who landed at Udahampur airfield earlier this morning, was supposed to fly to twin districts of Doda and Kishtwar before heading to Budgam in Kashmir to announce a package under Centre sponsored Udaan scheme.
However, he was forced to directly head for Srinagar from Udhampur due to bad weather.
"He landed at Udhampur and from there he has flown to the Valley," IG Jammu, Rajesh Kumar, had told PTI earlier on Saturday morning.
IG had, however, refused to comment on whether Rahul's visit to the area was rescheduled or cancelled.
