To press for their demands, Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council calls for mass disobedience

In a major problem for the central government, the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC), Kargil has now called for mass disobedience movement.

The latest decision has followed from the mass protests and closure of government offices against the creation of a separate division for Ladakh with its headquarters at Leh.

The movement has also called for all government offices not to entertain government orders unless the Governor reviews the decision.

They have refused to be part of new division unless there is a six month rotation of offices between Kargil and Leh.

All district offices in Kargil and Leh work under the Autonomous councils, and the resolution passed by LAHDC Kargil has created a serious challenge for the Governor’s administration.

It says that LHDC Kargil has decided to spearhead mass civil disobedience against the Governor administration’s order unless necessary amendments are made.

Jammu and Kashmir is under President’s Rule.

The decision on separating Ladkah region from Kashmir division was taken less than a week after Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Leh.

The BJP had won Ladakh parliament seat in 2014 elections but suffered huge reverses after its local lawmaker and several other senior leaders from Ladakh resigned from party in November last.
