LAHDC UNDER PUBLIC PRESSURE
Though BJP has won the recent LAHDC elections in Ladakh, but its leadership is feeling the heat on the ground as common people are pressing them hard to prevail upon the central government for the restoration of economy and easing of their lives.
There is a lot of pressure from the locals of Leh and adjacent villages especially the border villages on the newly elected LAHDC to ease their life. Dozens of delegations have already appraised them about the difficulties and about the economic depression being faced by the people of Ladakh due to the standoff and also after becoming union territory.
There is a sense of ease in the past few days, as the reports are coming from the border villages that there would be an ease in the prevailing situation as the several rounds of talks between PLA and Indian Army have started showing results.
Reports from Leh said that after getting the feedback from the councilors and also from the delegations that came to meet CEO (LAHDC) Leh, Tashi Gyalson, he met the union defence minister in New Delhi and submitted a memorandum with demands from the people of Ladakh.
Tashi Gyalson has told local reporters of Leh that they have been assured by Rajnath Singh that after easing the situation on the borders, they will take a final call about the demand of bunkers for the villagers living in the front line areas of the border in eastern Ladakh.
