First memorandum submitted by Jugal Kishore Sharma expressed concern over the plight of the people living on Jammu and Kashmir-Pakistan borders stating that these people suffer due to cross border firing, which results into loss to precious lives and standing crops, livestock, houses and injuries to innocent citizens. The memorandum said that although these border people suffer a lot, the studies of their children too suffer but still they do not migrate and hence work as brave soldiers against all odds. It was demanded in the memorandum that a special recruitment drive by army and para military forces be started for absorption of them so that they can support their families.
Second memorandum submitted by Thumpstan Chhewang explained the havoc caused by incessant rains and instances of cloud bursts in Ladakh and demanded sanctioning of financial packages for two districts of Ladakh for relief and rehabilitation of the affected people besides a separate financial package for Ladakh be included in the proposed package for Jammu and Kashmirs.
