While the UT administration has defended Patel's proposals for promotion of tourism, locals view them as a threat to the social and cultural fabric of the archipelago.
People across the islands held a 12-hour hunger strike against the reforms, with placards saying 'Revoke LDAR (Lakshadweep Development Authority Regulation)' and 'Justice for Lakshadweep'.
