With Home Minister Rajnath Singh visiting Ladakh for two days, all local political, religious and social organisations have started to met him and demanded a Union Territory (UT) status for Ladakh.

According to Singh, they all submitted a memorandum to the Home Ministry appealing him to grant UT status to Leh-Ladakh.

The memorandum said:

“Given the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir, all of us are committed to realisation of long-standing demand for granting the Union Territory status to Ladakh. We appeal to the Government of India in one voice to consider our demand.”

Ladakhis over the years have complained that politicians only confine their visit to north India to just Kashmir Valley or the Jammu region.

 

Thus Singh in his last visit to Kashmir valley had made a commitment to visit Leh soon and promised to listen to their demands and aspirations.



Meanwhile, the Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to relax their Protected Area Permit (PAP) regime in Ladakh and allow foreigners to visit restricted areas in Leh district.

With this, they hope to increase the footfall of tourists in the area which will give their economy a considerable boost.
