He mentioned this when a group from the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC) in Kargil, led by Councillor Shri Stanzin Lakpa, met with him.

Union Minister Dr. Jitendra Singh said that under Prime Minister Modi’s government, there has been rapid development in Ladakh. A group from LAHDC-Kargil, led by Councillor Shri Stanzin Lakpa, met with Dr. Singh to discuss this. This news was reported on January 15, 2024. (Pib).

The delegation thanked Prime Minister Modi for the significant development in Ladakh since it became a Union Territory in 2019. Dr. Jitendra Singh noted that although Ladakh sought UT status since 1949, it was only achieved decades later under PM Modi’s leadership. He highlighted Modi’s special focus on Ladakh, contrasting with past governments’ neglect. Notable developments include establishing a university, a hotel management institute, and professional colleges for the first time in the region.

Dr. Jitendra Singh discussed PM Modi’s “Carbon Neutral” Ladakh plan and a Rs. 50 crore development package for the region. He highlighted the establishment of an exclusive UPSC exam center in Leh, the upcoming South East Asia’s first Night Sky Sanctuary in Eastern Ladakh, and the promotion of Astro-tourism. He also mentioned initiatives like promoting ‘Leh Berry’ cultivation, commercial farming of medicinal plants including “Sanjeevani Booti”, and the Department of Atomic Energy’s plan to introduce Gamma Irradiation Technology in Ladakh for better preservation of fruits and vegetables. This technology has already helped in exporting Ladakh apricots to international markets like Dubai.
