Jammu: In order to promote education in Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, two university campuses, one each in Leh and Kargil districts, will soon come up, the state government said on Sunday.

"Two university campus, one each for Leh and Kargil, have been sanctioned and the same will be established soon," Minister for Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution and Transport Qamar Ali Akhoon said while addressing a function organized by Students Association of Ladakh at Jammu and Friends of Ladakh Society University here.

Efforts for opening of Government BEd Colleges in the twin districts are also under consideration, he said.

Calling for evolving a morale-based education system in the State, Akhoon said the objective can be achieved by maintaining cordial relation among students, teachers and parents.

He asked the student fraternity to work hard and adopt good habits and imbibe spirit of honesty and dedication to prepare themselves for the world of competition.

The Minister also paid rich tributes to those killed in last year's cloudburst in Ladakh region.
