Leaders of People’s Movement for Sixth Schedule went to New Delhi in an airplane on Saturday to meet Union Minister Amit Shah. The leaders had shot off a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi a day ago demanding 6th schedule for the UT.
It has been reliably learnt that the union government was now seriously thinking to apply 6th schedule in Ladakh after there was a campaign by the locals demanding the same. Sixth Schedule was demanded by people after Ladakh became a UT.
Religious and political leaders across party line got united demanding sixth schedule for Ladakh as they claimed that in absence of a special status to the tribal Ladakh, environment and culture of the region can become vulnerable.
