BJP Ladakh unit chief and MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal has said that Rs 5,958 crores have been set aside for overall inclusive development of the Union Territory in 2020-21 budget by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman.

"Zanskar opens up from geographical lockdown by connecting Leh-Padum-Darcha road. New Leh-Singayla-Padum Road (280 km) is connected by reducing 160 km from Old Leh-Kargil-Padum Road (440 km) by completing two years of work in two months. Connectivity of infrastructure is the core of modern-day civilisation. Leh to Padum Road connected within a record span of time," Namgyal tweeted.

The lawmaker said that Ladakh is regaining its own geographical, cultural as well as political identity after being made a Union Territory.
