A seminar on Laghu Udhyog Bharti (Micro, Medium & Small Scale Industries) was organized at Sindhu Sanskriti Kendra Leh the other day.
Union Minister of State for Finance Arjun Ram Meghwal was the Chief guest on the occasion.
Minister for Industries & Commerce, J&K, Chander Prakash Ganga, Minister for Ladakh Affairs & Cooperatives, Chhering Dorjey, CEC LAHDC Leh, Dr. Sonam Dawa Lonpo, EC Works, Dorjey Motup, EC Agriculture Tsering Wangdus, EC Tourism Tsering Sandup, Councilors of LAHDC and representatives from Laghu Udhyog Bharti from 10 States of India attended the seminar.
Speaking on the occasion, the Union Minister urged upon the Industrialists and Members of Laghu Udhyog Bharti to adopt the border village of Demjok and other nearby two villages of Changthang for developing basic facilities, saying that this would not only help in improving the living conditions of the nomads but also help in promoting the Pashmina sector which has plenty of scope in the area.
Highlighting the rich presence of mineral deposits in Ladakh, Meghpal further urged the industrialists to discuss with LAHDC Leh for establishment of limestone, granite, uranium and other mineral industries in the area which would not only lessen the gap of regional imbalance but also in generating employment opportunities to the locals. He assured that the Union Government would extend all possible help in this regards.
