Sonam Wangchuk began his protest on India’s 74th Republic Day and a day ago too he made a similar appeal and asked people to participate in the fast and share their support on social media.

A day after the innovator started his protest, he issued a video saying that he was under house arrest. In a bond sent by the administration, he was asked to make no public statements to maintain the law and order in Ladakh. He initially decided on Khardungla as the venue for his fast but was asked to change it. He was told to hold the protest at his institute in presence of the security arrangements.
I AM UNDER HOUSE ARREST OR WORSE…
Ladakh UT shaken by my #ClimateFast
for safeguard of Ladakh under 6th schedule

The row began when the innovator cum educator issued a video asking PM Narendra Modi and the government to look into the depleting climatic condition in Ladakh and announced a fast to ‘safeguard Ladakh and the mountains and the 6th Schedule of the Constitution’.
Sonam Wangchuk is the same innovator who inspired Aamir Khan’s character in Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘3 Idiots’.
