MP Chhewang's resignation left Centre with no option but to fulfill long pending demands of Ladakh
Ladakhi leaders chose people over power, Jammu leaders reaped benefits of power

Early Times Report
Jammu, Feb 9: BJP leaders from Jammu region should learn a lesson from the leaders of Ladakh region, who preferred their people over power.
BJP Member Parliament from Ladakh Thupstan Chhewang had tendered his resignation from Parliament in November last year. In a letter written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah he had said that he is resigning from the Parliament as BJP has failed to fulfill the promises which were made by the party to the people of Ladakh.
An analyst while talking to Early Times said that the "pressure exerted" by Chewang activated the BJP led NDA government at the Centre and as a follow up action the government first gave divisional status to Ladakh and then carved it out as a separate division from Kashmir. "Chhewang leaving his MP seat left the BJP led government with no other option other than fulfilling the long pending demand of the people of Ladakh," he added.
A politician said that BJP leaders before coming into power made tall promises to the people of Jammu but after reaching to the corridors of power they forgot the promises which they had made to the people of Jammu region. "In fact after becoming ministers they became inaccessible. They never tried to inform the party high command about the Jammu specific issues. They always tried to project the goody, goody picture and remained busy in reaping the fruits of power," he said.
The politician said that BJP ministers were treated as "second fiddles" by their coalition partner, Peoples Democratic Party. "On many occasions BJP workers complained about them facing humiliation at the hands of the PDP leaders but their representatives (BJP leaders) ignored their complaints," he added.
The politician said that had the BJP leaders' mustered courage to oppose the anti-Jammu policies of the PDP ministers and leaders they would not have lost ground in the Jammu region. "Today people are asking direct questions to them. The report card of the BJP leaders reveals it all," he added.
An observer said that soon after Chhewang resigned, the BJP state president Ravinder Raina mocked his decision by saying, "The MP had been insisting for over a year that he wanted to quit politics and pursue a spiritual life. He also had health issues."
However, Chhewang had given a befitting reply to Raina by revealing that the state BJP chief had not even spoken to him after being elevated to the top post. "Leaders from a small place like Ladakh have proven that if anyone really wants to pursue the cause of their people they are bound to succeed," the observer added.
