Kargil,June 19 (Scoop News)- Social Activist and Senior Journalist from Ladakh, Sajjad Hussain Kargili called upon LG Ladakh, R K Mathur at Raj Niwas Kargil and raised various issues pertaining to the people of Ladakh.
Sajjad Kargili Raised the issue of Evacuation of Kurbathang Plateau,which is a long pending demand of the people of Kargil. Despite various representations from the public representatives and assurances given by the Government & Army Officials, the Plateau issue has not been resolved. Moreover, due to the growing population there is a need to establish a new town at Kurbathang. It will enable the civil administration to expand the urban settlement in Kargil Town.
Sajjad Kargili raised the growing demand of AIR service particularly during Winters requested for Stationing of Pawan Hans Helicopter at Kargil so that in cases of emergency its services could be utilized. Moreover, he requested to ensure operation of Pawan Hans in summer months in addition to its operations in the winter months between Kargil-Srinagar, and Kargil Jammu. Further, it is required that the services be provided on subsidized rates so that maximum utilization of the service is ensured. The general public including patients, senior citizens, students, and tourists could be benefitted from this service.
Focusing on the increasing demand of the Tourism Sector as well as to open alternate routes for Ladakh, Sajjad Kargili requested for Opening up of Kargil Drass Gurez roads as well as Kargil Panikhar Phalgam Road which has been a very long pending demand of the people of Drass, Gurez and Suru areas.
These roads are traditional routes and if these roads are opened it will also open new avenues especially in the tourism and trade sector.
He further requested that Most of the areas in Kargil district are deprived of telecommunication. Despite multiple surveys telecommunication networks have not been provided. Telecommunication companies have expressed their readiness but the issue of the mandatory NOCs from the Defence Forces derails the entire exercise made by the local authorities for installation of communication towers.
He Appealed the LG Ladakh to take serious note of the issue and take it up with the Defence Authorities for issuance of a collective NOC so that telecommunication facilities could be made available in the borders areas of Kargil including Karkit-Badgam, Hundurman, Kaksar, Latoo, Shimsha and several other areas. I would also like to draw your kind attention to the requirement for pointed and targeted commitment of the UT Administration for providing telecommunication for areas of the Barsoo Valley, where there is no major security issue visa vis the NOC from the Defence Authorities.
Sajjad Kargili stressed on the need to resolve the employment issues in UT Ladakh urged upon LG Ladakh to resume the process of recruitment in the Border Police Battalion.
