    India needs to back up construction of highways with moving a large number of population to ladakh and the north east. This is the only way to fix out population problem and security. Also protect minorities (hindus) in these areas with permanent army settlement.
    We cannot afford to neglect these areas as if they do not belong to Indians. This is a failed congress policy to underpopulate these regions.
