“Several people wanted to visit the Ladakh region to explore business opportunities but only those who are genuinely interested in tapping its resources, and not misusing them, can be welcomed,” said Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, BJP MP from Ladakh on Wednesday.

Namgyal was speaking at an event in Maharashtra where he said that those people who wanted to use the resources in Ladakh for selfish purposes are not welcome in the region.

“After the abrogation of Article 370 and 35 A, several people want to visit Ladakh to explore business opportunities. There can be two types of people. Some people will be those who want to explore the region while some who want to use the resources for their selfish motives. Those who want to explore, we welcome such people,” said Jamyang Namgyal.

“Some people who are insecure themselves create a perception that politics is a dirty game, which is not true,” he added.

Earlier, in August Namgyal, the youngest MP from Ladakh at 33 was trending for his fiery speech in the parliament after the Centre’s decision to abrogate Article 370 and Article 35A. He is born to a carpenter father and a housewife mother in Matho village outside of Leh.

PM Narendra Modi praised Namgyal soon after his fiery speech through his tweet.

On August 5, the Centre had abrogated Article 370 from the Constitution and split the state into Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh.
