Ladakh Council polls: NC entitled to plough symbol, says SC

The Supreme Court has allowed the National Conference to contest the upcoming elections in Kargil on its reserved party symbol and directed a fresh poll notification to be issued within a week. The court criticized the Ladakh administration for not allotting the symbol despite a favorable order from the high court. The NC was denied permission to contest on its reserved symbol as it is not a recognized state party in Ladakh. The court imposed a cost of ₹1 lakh on the Ladakh administration and stated that elections should be independent and free from extraneous influence.

The apex court also came down heavily on the Ladakh administration for notifying the LAHDC polls while sitting over the representation made by National Conference seeking the allotment of the reserved symbol despite a favourable order to the political party being passed by the high court of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
