Jammu: An organisation spearheading a campaign for Union Territory status to Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday held a demonstration against the recommendations of Prime Minister's Working Group, which has rejected the demand.

Protesting against the report of the group headed by Justice Sagir Ahmed, activists of Lakadh Union Territory Front (LUTF) raised anti-government slogans in front of Raj Bhavan here.

State BJP chief Ashok Khajuria, Jammu Bar Association (JBA) President Sunil Sethi, Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industries (JCCI) President Y V Gupta, Panun Kashmir President Ajay Charangoo took part in demonstration, led by LUTF chairman Sonam Dawa.

LUTF has been holding dharnas at Leh and Zanaskar in Ladakh for past three days for granting of UT status to the region.

"In this direction, we have submitted a 20 point memorandum to President Pratibha Patil," Dawa told reporters.
