Ladakh's 'Rancho' breaks hunger strike after 21 days

Aamir Khan's movie 'Three Idiots' was the central character of 'Phungsukh Wangdu'. Nicknamed 'Rancho'. That character in the movie is real life Sonam Wangchuk. This Magsaysay Award-winning educator and environmental activist has started a movement with two demands. Fulfilling all the central government's promises to Ladakh and protecting Ladakh's environment from the clutches of big industrialists.

Ladakh was carved out of Jammu and Kashmir into two separate Union Territories on 5 August 2019. Article 370 of the Constitution was abolished on that day.

Sonam Wangchuk claimed that then the Prime Minister had promised that Ladakh would be included in the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution. Five years later, Union Home Minister Amit Shah informed the representatives of Leh and Kargil that Ladakh would not be brought under the Sixth Schedule.
