Yesterday, at an event organised by the J&K Oil Tankers Union at Transport Nagar in Jammu a ‘Paath’ was held prior to the beginning of the Leh – Ladakh season, seeking blessings for safe passage of transporters, drivers and cleaners. The guest of honour, MLC Vikramaditya Singh addressed members and management of the Union and spent the afternoon interacting with them.
The MLC said that, ‘having traveled several times to the remotest areas of Ladakh myself, I well appreciate the treacherous terrain these men have to negotiate and the difficulties they face. As MLC, I will ensure that their issues are taken up with our Government and properly addressed’. He further said that the community of the J&K Oil Tankers Union is a key stakeholder and driver of the economy in the state.
