SRINAGAR, Jan 20: The engineers in Union Territory (UT) of Ladakh are on one-day pen down strike on Monday in protest against the administration decision to call application from candidates from all over India for different engineering posts in the region.
The strike was also supported by several other organizations.
The UT administration in an advertisement recently has asked candidates to apply for different vacant engineering posts in Ladakh. The notice said candidates from outside the UT of Ladakh can also apply for these posts.
Reacting sharply to the advertisement, the local engineering association announced one day strike today.
“How can candidates from outside the UT of Ladakh apply for these posts when we were assured that there will be no compromise with our land and employment,” the engineering associations said.
We will oppose any such move, they said, adding the people of Ladakh will fight for their rights.
The engineering association of Kargil has also supported the call.
