Ladakh: People of India don’t need to worry till the trio of Narendra Modi, Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh is part of the Central government, said Ladakh MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal on Friday amid the ongoing standoff with China. He also asserted that Ladakh feels safe under the leadership of PM Modi.
While speaking to media, the Ladakh MP said, “Till Modi ji, Amit Shah ji are in central govt and Rajnath i is the Defence Minister, people of India don’t need to worry.”
“With steps taken by this government in border areas, whether it is Ladakh or Arunachal Pradesh, not even an inch of land can be invaded by outsiders,” he added.
He continued saying that the proposal sent by the Chinese Army has been refused by India and as a local of Ladakh and representative of people, he has been witnessing much drama by neighbouring nations for quite some time now.
“For the first time, under the leadership of PM Modi, people of Ladakh feel safe,” said Jamyang Tsering Namgyal.
Ladakh’s Tso Kar Wetland Complex added to list of Ramsar site
India has added Tso Kar Wetland Complex in Ladakh as its 42nd Ramsar site, the second one in the Union Territory (UT) of Ladakh, according to the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change.
“Happy to share that high-altitude wetland complex in Changthang region of Ladakh is recognized as wetland of international importance. The complex is a notable example of two connected lakes, the freshwater Startsapuk Tso and the hypersaline Tso Kar. Now, India has 42 Ramsar sites,” Union Minister of Environment of Forest and Climate Change Prakash Javadekar tweeted.
The Tso Kar Basin is a high-altitude wetland complex, consisting of two principal waterbodies, Startsapuk Tso, a freshwater lake of about 438 hectares to the south, and Tso Kar itself, a hypersaline lake of 1800 hectares to the north, situated in the Changthang region of Ladakh, India. It is called Tso Kar, meaning white lake, because of the white salt efflorescence found on the margins due to the evaporation of highly saline water.
The Tso Kar Basin is an A1 Category Important Bird Area (IBA) as per BirdLife International and a key staging site in the Central Asian Flyway. The site is also one of the most important breeding areas of the Black-necked Crane (Grus nigricollis) in India.
