DCC holds ‘Chorahai Pe Charcha’, highlights crucial issues concerning common people
astronomical airfares cause of major anxiety

Leh(Ladakh), March 11,(Scoop News)-A protest rally ‘Chorahai Pe Charcha’ was organised by the District Congress Committee (DCC) at Balkhang Chowk on Friday to project various crucial issues concerning the local people including astronomical airfares on Leh sector.

Speaking on the occasion, DCC president Tsering Samphel sought the attention of the authorities towards inordinate delay in issuing Permanent Resident and Scheduled Tribe Certificates in Khaltse sub division,

Referring to projects which were launched during Congress rule like beautification of Leh town, sewerage water supply project and other developmental works, Samphel accused the present dispensation of delaying them intentionally on petty political grounds.

He also highlighted the astronomical airfare being charged by various airlines causing immense despair and unease among serious patients besides student community studying outside Ladakh region. Samphel also spoke about exorbitant rates being charged from private and public vehicles in the parking lots set up in the town.

Castigating the present dispensation, he questioned the callous attitude of the authorities towards the people in the region.

While raising the issues concerning the people including huge airfare being charged by various airlines on Leh route, former Chief Executive Councillor (CEC) of Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC), Rigzin Spalbar, recalled his meeting, along with other stakeholders, with the Union Secretary, Ministry of Civil Aviation in 2014 at Delhi where it was decided to cap the airfare at rupees 2, 500 per person on this route.

Availing the facility of three seats, the patients were to be charged for single seat, he added. Spalbar accused the present dispensation for not pursuing the case with the Ministry of Civil Aviation thereafter.

Blaming the authorities of being insensitive toward problems of people, he asked them to look inwards and help the people in improving their lot. ‘Ladakhis are the real guardians of the borders in the region and they should be given what they rightfully deserve,’ he added.

He questioned Central Government’s failure to build an all weather road to the region where people suffer immensely due to the closure of road for winter months when they (people) remain cut off from rest of the world for over six months.
