Amid ongoing protests by people of Kargil over their demand for rotational divisional headquarters, Governor Satya Pal Malik has said a committee of secretaries has been formed to ensure justice for the district.
"The divisional status for Ladakh was a long-standing demand (of the people of the region). We have formed a committee of secretaries which will look into the issue so that Kargil gets justice," the Governor told reporters on the sidelines of a function in Katra township of Reasi district.
In a major decision on February 8, the Jammu and Kashmir administration sanctioned creation of a separate administrative and revenue division for Ladakh, with its headquarters at Leh.
Malik replied in negative when asked whether his administration plans to give divisional status to any other region of the state.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the National Conference are advocating similar status to Pir Panjal and Chenab valley region.
"It (divisional status) was imperative for both the districts of Leh and Kargil…let those talking about it come to power and do so," the Governor said.
