LEH: Leaders of Anjuma Imamia Leh expressed serious concerns about the attitude of the Chief Executive Councillor (CEC) LAHDC Leh alleging that he was not happy with Nominated Councillor, Sayeeda Bano Ladakhi, who represents the Shia community for raising the issue of land allotment in favour of the community in LAHDC General Council Meeting.
Briefing media persons here on Tuesday, President Anjuma Imamia Leh, Ashraf Ali Barcha flanked by Majlis-e-Ullama Leh, Congress leader and former Executive Councillor, LAHDC, Abass Abidi and BJP Councillor, nominated, Sayeeda Bano Ladakhi said “For the last 15 years we have been approaching all concerned authorities regarding allotment of a land in our favour for an Eidgah and as a mark of protest we even performed Eid Nimaz Prayer on the Leh Polo Ground”.
Barcha said that incumbent LAHDC had assured them that land in favour of the community for an Eidgah will be approved and accordingly, the community had expected it to be approved in one of the Executive Council meetings but this didn’t happen.
“Recently a delegation from Anjuma Imamia Leh called on the CEC regarding this but to our dismay the CEC termed the raising of the land allotment issue in the General Council Meeting by Sayeeda Bano Ladakhi as inappropriate,” Barcha alleged.
President Anjuma Imamia Leh reminded that Shia Community has always stood with the Buddhist Community regarding the Union Territory demand for Ladakh.
Majlis-e-Ullama Leh said that there is no point having representative of the community in LAHDC if she is not allowed to raise issues concerning the community.
Accusing CEC of the B JP run LAHDC for being the problem, B JP Councillor, Nominated, Sayeeda Bano Ladakhi said, “BJP stands in favour of allotment of the land from the very beginning but the CEC is having a problem with this and he also objected when I raised the issue in the General Council Meeting.”
Meanwhile, Anjuma Imamia Leh, has announced to stage protest on Leh Bazaar to express their grievances to the public on Wednesday.
