LEH, Dec 21: Serving 15-day ultimatum to Ladakh administration to start the recruitment process in the UT, students’ bodies today threatened to come out on streets if their long pending demand is not fulfilled.
While addressing a joint press conference today, Ladakh Students Educational & Environmental Action Forum (LEAF) chief coordinator Lobzang Spaldan said that no single recruitment has been done in Ladakh since it became a Union Territory.
“Administration has been constantly making false promises to the unemployed youth for recruitment process but on ground nothing happened till date, hence we have decided to come out on streets if recruitment process is not started within 15 days,” Spaldan said and urged the administration to stop the out sourcing practice in UT Ladakh and start the recruitment process.

Speaking on the occasion, All Ladakh Unemployed Youth Association (ALUYA) president Tuntup Thinles said that unemployment is the biggest crisis in Ladakh with no single recruitment happened in the past two years. “Ladakh MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal is constantly making false promises to the unemployed youth from time to time sometimes even mentioning number of posts for recruitment but in nothing happened in reality,” he added.
“Now we are fed up with the false promises and if recruitment issue is not resolved within 15 days we will mobilize the entire youth of Ladakh to come out on streets to protest” said Thinles. He also added that the MP is also misleading the youth about setting up of Ladakh Public Service Commission as no such announcement has been made by the Ladakh administration till date.
