Excelsior Correspondent

KARGIL, Jan 23: District Congress Committee (DCC) Kargil has appealed to the Union Government to revisit the decisions, especially with regard to formation of Planning and Monitoring Committee by the Ladakh UT Administration, establishment of Central PWD and formulation of rules for group B and group C posts, changing method of recruitment, qualification, probation, confirmation etc.
In a meeting of the senior DCC members held here today, under the leadership of Nasir Hussain Munshi (president), the speakers expressed serious concern over the unilateral decisions taken by Central Govt and the Administration of Ladakh UT recently. They said despite assurances during meetings of with Chief Secretary, Advisor and Lt Governor, no concern was shown by the Union Government and Ut Administration.
It was further observed in the meeting that no major demand including 14-point charter of demands / memorandum submitted by the Joint Action Committee Kargil, has been honoured/ fulfilled. They did not bother to discuss these issues before enforcing on the public, with the public representatives. Even the Hill Council is not being taken into confidence while initiating development works. A separate Development and Monitoring Board has been created undermining the Hill Council, the DCC members maintained.
The meeting concluded that these unilateral decisions amount to infringement of the rights of the elected representatives of the two districts Kargil and Leh, undermining the powers of LAHDC Leh and Kargil. The members in the meeting rejected these decisions and appealed the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and Lt Governor Ladakh UT RK Mathur to revisit these decisions in the interest of the people from Ladakh region.
