    That’s an extremely misleading news report. Since the road in question has neither been tarred nor has it been built till Nimmu (Manali - Darcha – Padum – Nimmu - Leh).

    Add to that, in order for this road to provide all-year and all-weather connectivity to Ladakh, it needs to have the Rohtang Tunnel operational (might happen towards the end of next year) and a tunnel under Shinku La needs to be constructed as well, since it is a pretty high pass in Zanskar region and there is no way, BRO would be able to keep it open throughout the year, considering they can’t even keep Rohtang Pass open!

    Actual news report regarding this, without the fiction can be found here, Darcha–Padum Road built.
