India’s Ladakh protests: Himalayan region demands more representation

For more than a month, some people in the Ladakh region of Indian-administered Kashmir have been on hunger strike.
They are protesting against a government decision to run the territory from New Delhi.
On Sunday, residents staged a sit-in.
They say the decision marginalises Ladakh’s local tribes.
The Buddhist-majority Himalayan region is demanding statehood and protection of natural habitats against development.
