Srinagar: General Secretary to Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP), Ram Madhav has reached Ladakh for his three day visit. Madhav’s visit, according to reports, holds significance following some recent development in BJP’s Ladakh unit.

To discuss various issues pertaining to party and political situation in Ladakh, Madhav soon after his arrival, held separate ‘closed door meetings’ with Councillors headed by Hill Council Chairman, Gyal P Wangyal in presence of Member of Parliament, Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, reports said.

On Sunday, Madhav held meetings with BDC Chairperson, Mandal presidents, District Executive Body headed by district president, Dorjay Angchok. Kargil delegation led by party district president, Ali Mazaj, BJYM president Mohammad Hassan Pasha and former J&K Legislative Council Chairman, Haji Anayat Ali also met Ram Madhav at hotel Grand Dragon.

Delegation from Zanskar led by Cha constituency Councillor Stanzin Lakpa also met BJP national general secretary with a demand to announce separate district for Zanskar region at earliest.

Madhav held detailed discussions with these leaders over prevailing political situation in Ladakh, on a day when celebration of Dr Syama Prasad Mukherjee’ birth anniversary are being held along with the birth anniversary celebration of Dalai Lama.

Soon after the meeting ended, Chairman Hill Council Gyal P Wangyal said the main issue put before Madhav by Hill Development Council was about the new financial rule due to which they are facing problems in Ladakh in execution of development works as working season is less here in comparison to other parts of the country.

“We demanded some relaxation in the financial rules in view of the problems being faced by us,” Wangyal was quoted by a Jammu based newspaper The Excelsior as saying.
