PDP fires Leh district president for demanding UT status


Srinagar, Oct 4, CNS: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has expelled District President Tashi Gayalson from the basic membership of the party for signing a memorandum, demanding Union territory status for province of and .

A PDP spokesman said the head of the party's disciplinary committee Abdul Rehman Veeri took the decision against Gayalson for violating the party's whip.

“Mr Gayalson signed the memorandum demanding union territory status for Ladakh which is against the policies of the PDP. That is why he has been expelled,” Veeri said, according to the spokesman.

He said the PDP believes in unity of the state and any move which aims at dividing it on regional and religious lines would only be an unfortunate development, and the party under no circumstances can endorse any such divisive move.

“People of different faiths, ethnicity and languages live cordially in J&K since ages. PDP believes of taking everyone together to find a lasting solution to our problems,” he said and added it was with this aim that the party took a bold and historic decision of forming a govt with the BJP.

The spokesman said the people here are still suffering the fallout of partition and that any further division of the state will only add to the problems of the state and the region.
