Srinagar- The Kargil Democratic Alliance (KDA), an amalgam of different political and religious parties based in Ladakh’s Kargil region has raised strong objection to the “politically motivated walk” of a Tibetan origin Monk.

According to a statement, a copy of which lies with Kashmir Observer, the apex body expressed its strong objections and reservations regarding the walk and maintained that it was an attempt to disrupt the communal harmony of Ladakh.

“The walk is a politically motivated walk from Leh to Kargil under the guise of a Peace March. We do not appreciate any such activity in Kargil headquarter that is detrimental to the peace & stability of the region,” the statement reads.

It further said that the timing of this “so-called” Peace March assumes even greater significance given the fact the people of Leh and Kargil are fighting for constitutional safeguards and Statehood under the unified leadership of the Kargil Democratic Alliance and the Leh Apex Body.

The apex body cautioned the administration of “dangerous consequences” of such a move.

“This kind of unnecessary provocation must stop as soon as possible. The responsibility for any such unwanted incident that results from the non-action of the Administration should squarely lie upon the Administration.” It noted.

The body also appealed to the people of Kargil to maintain peace and harmony and not to get provoked.

“We want to clear this to the people of Ladakh that the said issue is under serious consideration of both DA and LBA,” it noted adding that the “Dialogue is the way forward for maintaining the amicable elation that we have sustained for centuries in this valley,”

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Kargil Anayat Ali Choudhary didn’t receive repeated phone calls from this newspaper.
