Ladakh’s Urgent Hunger Strike Situation

Leh, Ladakh, sees a hunger strike led by Sonam Wangchuk to support residents demanding safeguards under the Sixth Schedule for land and water management decisions. The strike, initially led by Mr. Wangchuk, has now been taken up by women. Failure to meet demands could lead to further escalation, with youth, monks, and the elderly joining in. The hunger strike stems from concerns over the governance structure post-J&K’s Union Territory bifurcation.
