Ladakh region has been in news for many reasons including standoff with PLA in its eastern parts. Even as the winter is coming, there is no good news from the borders of Ladakh as both the sides have decided to be ready even in winter.

On the political side Ladakh region was declared as a separate union territory without the legislature being controlled directly from New Delhi. At the initial stage people of Ladakh were very happy, especially the Buddhist of Leh who were feeling that they were being ruled by Srinagar and called it as their freedom. After 15 months of the announcement, now people of Ladakh including Leh have realized that their future generations would not forgive them if they will not stand up and get some special laws from New Delhi like article 370 to protect their land and jobs.

In Ladakh LAHDC elections have proved that anger is growing as BJP could get only 15 seats this time out of 26, even as they promised new law to safeguard all the concerns of the people in this freshly carved union territory especially about land and jobs.

In Kargil district, already the entire leadership has clubbed together including their religious organizations and they have decided to have meetings with the recently formed political alliance for Gupkar declaration. Sensing support in Ladakh region, without wasting time, the political alliance has dispatched a team under the leadership of former chief minister Omar Abdullah to hold talks with Kargil leadership.
