BJP MP seeks justice for people of Ladakh

Excelsior Correspondent
JAMMU, June 20: After the conclusion of his 3-day tour of Ladakh region, BJP MP and Prabhari of the State, Avinash Rai Khanna has criticized the Government for not keeping any centre at Leh in Ladakh region for the candidates appearing in Civil Services and other competitive examination.
He has also noted with concern the inconvenience faced by the people as there is no bench of State High Court in Ladakh region and the people have to travel to Srinagar or Jammu to seek justice from High Court. Khanna has taken up these issues with the Central Government. In the letters written to Central authorities, he has pleaded that in Leh the UPSC and Jammu and Kashmir Public Services Commission are not setting up their centers for the examination they are conducting, thereby the students have to either go to Jammu or Srinagar which is far away from Leh and not affordable for the poor students to appear in these competitive examinations.
He has also written that the litigants of Leh, Ladakh and Kargil have to go to Jammu or Srinagar High Courts if they want to file any appeal as Leh Ladakh and Kargil have no separate High Court’s Bench.
The people of Ladakh region have been demanding that a separate Bench of High Court be set up at Leh on the pattern of Bench of High Court of Jammu. If not possible then a mobile High Court Bench which can function 7 to 15 days in a month be opened at Leh which will give relief to the litigants of the regionl.
Mr Khanna has also raised the issues of high air fare of the flight to Leh and Kargil and has demanded increase in the frequency of flights and curtailment in the fair.
