JAMMU, Feb 9: Prof. Saifuddin Soz, former Union Minister Saturday stated that the “Governor’s order granting divisional status to Ladakh is politically unsound and it has already created unease in Kargil district.”
“I strongly object to Governor’s decision to accord divisional status to Ladakh without taking the region’s political class (both of Leh and Kargil) into confidence. It is basically wrong for him to think that he (the Governor) is an exact substitute for a duly elected government in the state. I am sure Governor Malik has overlooked the implications of such an order,” Soz said in a statement issued to the press.
He said, “Ladakh region consists of two sub-regions- Leh and Kargil, with distinct ethnic, cultural and religious features! The Governor’s order will promote a sort of unrest in that region as he (the Governor) did not discuss this proposal with the political class of both regions in Ladakh!”
Soz said that Governor Malik should realize that he was duty-bound to consult political parties of the state before taking such substantially important political decisions.
“Governor Malik’s decision speaks of his inexperience of dealing with issues of this nature in a sensitive state like Jammu and Kashmir,” Soz said.
