The ghat belongs to the people of Lahaul and Spiti and no outsiders can claim their rights over it. We want people to join together to fight against the wrong and appealed that they should not fall prey to the evil designs of opposition, he said.He said that the work of General Reserve Engineering Force upto Sansari Nallah road was in very poor condition and he would write to the Prime Minister to improve the condition of this road from Tandi to Sansari Nallah and particularly the road from Kaddu Nallah to Sansari, the 58-kilometre stretch.Lashing out at the BJP, he said it is sad that whenever the BJP comes to power, it tries to close institutes or wrap- up development projects forgetting that the educational institutes or development projects were opened by the government not and not by the Congress party.
