Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday said a monitoring unit would be soon set up in Leh to oversee proper implementation of the relief measures announced for the flood-hit victims. Singh, who arrived in Leh on a daylong visit, announced Rs 125-crore aid from PM's relief fund for rebuilding houses in Leh destroyed in the recent flash floods triggered by a major cloudburst. Singh also met with J&K chief Omar Abdullah and other officials to discuss the relief and rehabilitation measures.
