Struggle for UT Ladakh
Thupstan Chhewang My attention has been drawn to certain references made about me by Mr Nurboo Gialchan, Congress MLC, in the article “Divisional status for Ladakh-a rejoinder” on March 21.

Thupstan Chhewang might have said such things at Polo Ground or anywhere else. But he keeps mum where his voice matters most.” It is not surprising that Mr Gi...

Usually our politicians try to put up a brave 'dabang' image in public and would never reveal their weaknesses. Last week when we saw Shri Jaswant Singh shedding tears in public because BJP had denied him a ticket from Barmer, people were really shocked. Jaswant Singh had served in various senior positions in the party and in the government of India. BJP had made him external affairs minister of India and he had also se...
