People of Kargil want to be the part of Kashmir valley and claim that as they have been made part of union territory of Ladakh without legislature they have been reduced to second class citizens.

They have been telling the media in the recent past that either they should get back all the safeguards for their coming generations from the central government or they should be linked back with Kashmir valley.

The Central government has recently said that they are committed to empowering the hill councils of Leh and Kargil and would safeguard the interests of the UT of Ladakh. Official spokesman said that the government is seriously exploring the possibilities of providing all relief to the people of Ladakh so that they don’t nurse any fears.

Former MP and head of the Ladakh delegation, Thupstan Chhewang claimed that Ladakhis demanded protection under the Sixth Schedule of the constitution, adding that Ladakh wouldn’t accept the domicile law that has been implemented in Jammu and Kashmir. On Saturday, the Ladakh delegation also met Union Minister Amit Shah.

The LAHDC elections are set to take place on October 16. Prominent political parties, including the BJP, AAP and Congress had decided to boycott the polls demanding the extension of constitutional safeguards to Ladakh.

People of Kargil are not happy with all such developments and want some permanent solution to their problems as they feel disempowered like the people of Kashmir valley.
