Provide polling booth facility for Ladakhis in Jammu: BJP

 

There is dire necessity to create polling booth facility for Ladakhis in Jammu like migrants and other groups of voters who were provided the same facility. This was demanded by BJP State President Jugal Kishore Sharma today while supporting the demand raised by Ladakhis living in Jammu that they should be given an opportunity to exercise their democratic fundamental right.

Jugal Kishore Sharma said that the sole parliamentary constituency of cold desert region Ladakh is going to polls on May 7 but a large number of voters who are putting up in Jammu are facing problems as they are not in a position to reach their respective polling booths in different areas of Ladakh. The difficult topography of Ladakh region do not permit frequent travel by common Ladakhis who reside in other areas of the state and particularly the expensive travel from other areas of state to Ladakh add financial burden of the Ladakhi voters in particular.

Jugal Kishore Sharma elaborated logically the demand coming from the Ladakhi people living in Jammu and made a fervent appeal to the Election Authorities to provide polling booth facility to Ladakhi voters who are in Jammu and other areas pursuing their studies or earning their livelihood so that they can use their right to franchise on time.
