Ladakh BJP MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal said several people wanted to visit the region to explore business opportunities but only those who are genuinely interested in tapping its resources, and not misusing them, can be welcomed on Wednesday, October 9. Speaking at an event in Maharashtra, Namgyal said 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," he said. Namgyal, who had strongly supported the Centre's moves on Kashmir in Parliament, appealed to youths to hit the ground for nation-building.
