Inaugurates library at tribal museum

Kullu, February 21

Technical Education Minister Ram Lal Markanda participated in the traditional sport ‘chholo’ during the snow festival at Keylong in Lahaul and Spiti today. He also tried his hand at traditional archery. During his two-day sojourn here, he also took stock of various development works.

The minister inaugurated the district library at the tribal museum building. He also visited the regional hospital, Keylong, and instructed the officials concerned to start the construction of the doctor’s residence soon.

Addressing mediapersons, he said all connecting roads in Lahaul were opened for traffic for the first time in winter due to opening of the Atal Tunnel. He said there had been no dependence on helicopter service and the tunnel was a boon in case of medical emergencies. — TNS
