Early Times Report
SRINAGAR, Oct 14: The people of Ladakh have been seeking protection of land and tribal status and are set to submit a memorandum to the centre.
On August 5, the Centre abrogated the Article 370 and bifurcate the state into two union territories-Jammu Kashmir and Ladakh.
There are apprehensions that people of Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh may lose the jobs as they no more enjoy the special status.
Sources said a joint delegation from Kargil and Leh recently met the Governor in Srinagar and sought that UT Ladakh might be declared tribal area under the 6th Schedule of Constitution.
They also sought strengthening of the LAHDCs of Leh and Kargil through required amendments of the LAHDC Act, separate UT Ladakh cadre and indigenous certificate on the lines of Nagaland to protect government jobs for locals, sources said.
Ladakh representatives had been demanding extraordinary powers to Leh and Kargil councils to protect local interests, land and cultural identity" of the arid region.
On September 29, Ladakh representatives, during their meeting with a three-member panel formed by the Union Government to oversee the distribution of assets and liabilities between the Union Territories of J&K and Ladakh, had sought due share in the assets both moveable and immovable properties owned by Jammu and Kashmir state within the state as well as outside of the state. The outside properties include lands and buildings situated in Delhi, Chandigarh and Mumbai.
The representative of Ladakh are framing a report to submit to Ministry of Home Affairs to ensure that land and jobs in the new Union Territory are protected.
A source in the Leh Autonomous Hill Development Council said they have sought suggestions from civil society groups, social, and religious groups, which are being examined. "The draft is being prepared. Once the examination process is completed, the report will likely to be submitted how to safeguard the land and jobs in Ladakh," the source said.
He however said people of Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh shall not fear of losing land and property.
"The Leh and Kargil autonomous hill development councils are already in Ladakh to safeguard the land here. There is no threat to jobs only IAS officers are brought here," he said
