MoS Home invites KDA, Apex Body Leh for talks
Various political, social and religious organisations of Leh and Kargil had decided to observe full day Ladakh bandh on Saturday as a mark of protest against the Ministry of Home Affair (MHA) for delaying dialogue process between the joint delegation, proposed by the Leh Apex Body (LAB) and Kargil Democratic Alliance.
Meanwhile, the Minister of State (MoS) for Home Affairs Friday night invited Kargil Democratic Alliance and Apex Body Leh for talks this afternoon in Leh. One of the leaders on way to meet MoS Home said that both the groups have been invited by MoS Home for talks to be held today at 12:45 in Leh.
He, however, said that the Ladakh Bandh call will stand till the meeting with the minister is held.
The two groups had agreed on 4-point agenda, which includes full statehood to Ladakh, recruitment policy with a resident certificate on the pattern of PRC, separate Lok Sabha seats for Leh and Kargil districts, and constitutional safeguards under 6th Schedule or Article 371. ( CNS )
