Srinagar: Chering Dorjay, the Bharatiya Janata Party’s president for Ladakh, has resigned from his post and the primary membership of the party to protest the “utter failure of UT Administration Ladakh in evacuating passengers, patients, pilgrims and students stranded at different places throughout India.”
“The UT Administration is utterly insensitive and callous about the pathetic condition of our stranded people. The UT Administration has rendered autonomous hill councils of Leh and Kargil completely ineffective by not allowing them to function as per the council Act. The people of Ladakh have sacrificed a lot to achieve the autonomous status for the two districts,” he wrote in a letter to JP Nadda, BJP National President.
“I have expressed my doubts about these problems well in time to the party high command through video conferencing.
I am pained to see the patriotic people of Ladakh who have stood with our armed forces in all the wars fought by our nation since 1948 are treated so shabbily and with disrespect by the UT administrators,” he said.
