Jammu, May 23

Innovator and education reformist Sonam Wangchuk is set to go on a 10-day hunger strike from May 26 to press for his demand regarding the grant of the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution to Ladakh.

He had observed a five-day fast in January as well. He had planned another fast in April but was deferred in wake of a G20 event during that time.

In a video message, Wangchuk said that in January he had requested the Prime Minister for preservation of environment, culture and heritage of Ladakh by extending sixth Schedule to the Union Territory.
