While Opposition Councillors led by Councillor Korzok and Opposition leader Gyurmet Dorjay staged a walkout on the second of the two-day General Council meeting on Tuesday to register their protest against not having a representative in the Executive Council from Changthang. In a joint letter to the CEC LAHDC Leh Jamynag Tsering Namyal, three BJP Councillors alleged during the recent reshuffle of the LAHDC Leh Changthang region was neglected in giving the due share of Executive Councillor.“Public of the area consisting of Nyoma Sub-Division and Durbuk Sub-Division are very upset as this was a huge discrimination because for the last many years Hill Council has been giving equal representation for Nubra, Sham, Changthang, Central Leh and Minonty in the Executive Council,” the letter reads. It added that this time in absence of representation in Executive Council, BJP councilors of Changthang had approached the CEC, MLC and State President BJP about claimed that the Counciloors have been assured to get an EC post sanction within a month. The BJP Mandal Presidents Nyoma, Durbuk, all the Sarpachs and Panchs have also approached you and you have given same assurance but in spite of lapse of more than one month, the demand of EC for Changthang has not been fulfilled due to which the public are losing faith in the party, the Councillors resented and stayed away from the official General Council review meeting.
