Cong’s game plan foiled, agitating Ladakh groups not ready to annoy Centre

Early Times Report

Jammu, May 8: Instead of reacting to the instigation of some Congress leaders, agitating groups of Ladakh are waiting some positive response from the Centre toward their “genuine” demands.
Highly placed sources said that some Congress and pro-Congress leaders are trying their best to start agitation in Ladakh as they want to settle political scrore with the BJP but the natural leaders are not ready to dance to the dictates of these politicians whose only agenda is to the corner BJP.
Reports said that after the appointment of the new Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh, agitating groups are hopeful that Union Government will open a channel of communication.
“Back channel communications are going on between some netural leader of Ladakh with the representatives of the Union Government”, sources said.
President Droupadi Murmu on in February appointed a new Lieutenant Governor for Ladakh amid growing voices from the union territory seeking statehood and special status under the sixth schedule of the Constitution.
A communique issued by the President's House said that Brig B.D. Mishra has been appointed as the L-G of Ladakh replacing Radha Krishna.
B.D. Mishra is a retired Brigadier of the Army, who served in the armed forces for more than three decades.
He has participated in the India-China war in 1962, 1965 war with Pakistan and the 1971 war against Pakistan in the liberation of Bangladesh.
As reported earlier, after holding a protest at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi in February this year, the agitating groups of Ladkah unofficially suspended their agitation as they were waiting for the response of the Union Government. Instead of announcing a calendar for their ongoing agitation, these groups have decided to give some time to the BJP-led government at the Centre to open a channel of communication to discuss their demands.
Representatives from Ladakh staged a dharna at the Jantar Mantar in support of their demands in February this year. Activists of two frontline organizations—Kargil Democratic Alliance (KDA) and Leh Apex Body (LAB) participated in the protest at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi. Some students of Ladakh, studying in New Delhi and adjoining areas, also attended the dharna.
The KDA and the LAB have been spearheading the agitation in support of their four major demands including full-fledged statehood for Ladakh, implementation of the Sixth Schedule to protect the interest of the tribal people of Ladakh, separate Lok Sabha seats for Kargil and Leh, and establishment of Ladakh Public Service Commission with the Ladakh Resident Certificate (LRC) as a mandatory requirement for all Gazetted Posts in Ladakh.
Ladakh was carved into a Union Territory without legislature when Articles 370 and 35A were abrogated, and Jammu and Kashmir were bifurcated into two Union Territories. Over the last two years, protests have been held in both Leh and Kargil demanding the protection of the interests of the people of Ladakh.
