Speaking to the people here he said: "The BJP-led NDA will grant UT status to Ladakh. It is the BJP's dream project. The BJP will establish higher educational institutions in Ladakh to cater to the educational needs of the people of Ladakh."
He added that the BJP will also improve the road connectivity between Srinagar-Jammu and Leh and Kargil.
Hitting out at the Congress, Gadkari said that the Congress was always unfaor to the people of the Himalayan region. "The BJP is fully aware of the plight of the Ladakhis. The BJP will not only grant UT status to them to enable them to lead a dignified life, protect and promote their distinct identity and personality and shape their future under the Indian constitution, but will also include Boti language in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution," he said.
Gadkari attacked the Abdullah's and the Gandhi's saying that Congress and the NC have caused enough of damage to Ladakh.
