STATE TIMES NEWS LEH: Union Minister, Dr Jitendra Singh on Monday said that the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has, in last five years, lived up to the commitment to ensure equitable development of all the three regions of the State, including Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu. Soon after his arrival here today, Dr Jitendra Singh said, this was for the first time after 65 years that, during Modi Government, the regional discrimination by earlier Congress and UPA Governments was brought to an end. He said, one of the distinct examples of this is that it was Modi Government at the Centre and Governor’s rule in the State, which issued orders for the creation of a separate administrative division for Ladakh region, thus addressing a long pending grievance that Ladakh felt unattended, because of being a part of Kashmir Division with headquarters at Srinagar. Dr Jitendra Singh recalled the frequent visits of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to Ladakh and said, that Modi has established a new tradition of visiting each of the three regions of State, including Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir during each of his official visits to the State. This, he said, has sent out a loud and effective message of Modi’s commitment to treat all three regions, including Ladakh, with equal attention and to separately address the requirements and needs of each of the three regions of the State. Dr Jitendra Singh further recalled that, last time, when he accompanied Prime Minister, Narendra Modi on his visit to Leh on February 3, the Prime Minister had made several important inaugurations and launchings, which included a new University for Ladakh. He said, on basis of last five years’ record of the Modi Government, people of Ladakh have sufficient reason to be assured that the development activity launched by Modi Government will gain further momentum in next five years. Appealing people for voting in favour of BJP, Dr Jitendra Singh said, Modi Government had begun its first term in office on May 26, 2014 with the Prime Minister pledging that far-flung and remote areas will be brought at par with other developed regions of the country and their untapped potentials will be exploited to the maximum. Ladakh, like Northeast, is a testimony to the fulfillment of this declaration, he added.
