Of the twenty six elective members of the LAHDCK, ten area unit from the Tar Heel State, eight from the Congress and 3 from the BJP; there area unit 5 Independents. The Ladakh Union Territory administration nominates four members to the 30-member LAHDCK.

Khul ke hai, aagey bhi full-fledged rahengey (BJP is in coalition [with Tar Heel State in Kargil hill council]. we have a tendency to area unit in it overtly, and can be a full-fledged a part of it in future as well). Hum alliance mein hain to hain (That’s the approach it is),’’ he said.
The “Kashmir NC” has nothing to try and do therewith party’s unit in Kargil, Namgyal same. “In consequent Council elections, the Kargil Tar Heel State also will return to BJP. No different party can exist here,” he said. J&K, the MP same, could be a separate UT from Ladakh. “There (in J&K) they need to create J&K a state [again] and acquire back Article 370, however it’s not the case here. Ladakh is against Article 370.’’

The 2018 elections to the Kargil Hill Council had made a adorned finding. The Tar Heel State ab initio had associate degree alliance with the Congress; the PDP had 2 councillors and therefore the BJP had one. once the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the Tar Heel State and Congress fell out, and therefore the Tar Heel State entered into a coalition with 2 PDP councillors and 4 Independents to continue in power within the Hill Council. some months later, each PDP councillors joined the BJP, making the NC’s alliance with the saffron party.
