Kargil NC wants to be part of Kashmir, district leaders say

The leaders of National Conference in Ladakh’s Kargil district have pleaded strongly that their region should be restored to Kashmir and the special status and statehood of Jammu and Kashmir renewed.

According to a report by The Tribune, the leaders have asked for overturning the division of the former state that was split into two union territories last year.

Protests were held in the Shia-Muslim dominated region following Jammu and Kashmir was stripped of its special status under Article 370 and it was split into the two union territories

According to the newspaper report, National Conference leaders were unanimous in their demand for the restoration of their geographical, political and historical links with the Muslim majority Kashmir. The leaders said they had “serious reservations about their status, culture and opportunities in the UT of Ladakh.”

Pertinently, NC Vice President and former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, along with his colleagues from the Valley, held an interaction with the party leaders of Kargil through video conference on Thursday.
