" He added that the people would no longer have to depend on borrowed power."
Leh, Aug 12 - We are committed to the development of Leh and Ladakh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said here Tuesday.

The Ladakh region has Prakash, Paryavaran and Paryatan (Power, Environment and Tourism), which is not just for Jammu and Kashmir, but also for the entire country, said Modi after inaugurating a hydropower project.

If these three are utilised properly then the country will benefit...Development must be such that it positively transforms the lives of the common people, he said.

Modi added that Leh is at the focus of his government's solar initiative.

I know the problems people face and most importantly I know the strength of this land....We have put Leh at the focus of our solar energy initiatives, Modi said while addressing the gathering after laying the foundation stone of the Rs.1,700 crore and 330-km long Leh-Srinagar transmission line here.

He added that the people would no longer have to depend on borrowed power.

Later, Modi will inaugurate another 44 MW hydro power project at Chutak village in Kargil district.
