Asserting that no real development took place in Kargil due to the dynastic politics of the Congress, NC and PDP, the BJP today said had the district been under its rule, it would have developed on par with any other region of the country.
Addressing the media here ahead of the elections to Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council, Kargil, BJP spokesperson Priya Sethi said the residents of the crucial district in Jammu and Kashmir must throw the "promoters of dynastic politics" out of power.
"Kargil would have developed on par with any other region of the country had political outfits like Congress, NC and PDP not encouraged and promoted dynastic rule in the state," the former minister said.
Since the Congress, National Conference (NC) and People's Democratic Party (PDP) regimes continued to patronage their wards and kin, people were never empowered and were left to fend for themselves, she added.
Sethi said development including better connectivity, harnessing solar hydro power, women empowerment and better employment opportunities were all initiated during the BJP regime at the Centre and efforts were on to make Kargil a hub of solar and hydro electricity.
Kargil is sure to regain its glory once Srinagar-Leh highway and tunnels are built to give the region all weather connectivity, she said, adding that the district was on the developmental map of the Union government.
To save about 7,800 metric tons of Apricot produce, the main cash crop of the region, a cold storage that will be powered by solar energy was on the anvil, she said.
