After Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded the speech by Jamyang Tsering Namgyal on Article 370 the day before in Parliament, the Ladakh MP on Wednesday revealed facing a problem of plenty - friendship requests on Facebook.

BJP MP Jamyang Tsering Namgyal from Ladakh has found it tough to contain his smile since Home Minister Amit Shah's announcement on Monday, and he has reasons galore to maintain that smile.

"We have struggled for 71 years to make Ladakh a union territory and to be a part of India". "They (people of Ladakh) wanted to be an inseparable part of India", he said.

He alleged that the earlier governments had never heard the demands of Ladakh.

Highlighting how revoking Article 370 is a historic as well as a bold decision, Namgyal further said that people of Ladakh, as well as Jammu and Kashmir, can truly prosper now.

On Tuesday, Namgyal highlighted just what making Ladakh into a separate Union Territory would mean for the region and its people. "We are against the division of Jammu and Kashmir on the basis of religion, language and region", said Asgar Ali Karbalai, a Congress rebel and former MLA in Kargil. "And today, these people talk about democracy - was that your democracy which was about shutting down people", he added. "Was that your democracy which was about shutting down people?" he asked. "So may please hit like and stay tuned with my official Facebook page attached here", he said in a tweet on Wednesday while providing a link to his official Facebook page. If the move was implemented, only two families would lose their job, he said.

The decision to grant Ladakh the status of a Union territory has exposed the fault lines between the largely Buddhist Leh and the Muslim-dominated Kargil district.

Namgyal also questioned the secularism of the Congress party, alleging that Article 370 had been misused by the party to drive out Kashmiri Pandits and for ending Buddhism in Jammu and Kashmir.

The Prime Minister also posted the link to his speech.

The Bill was passed by the Lower House through a voice vote, with 367 being in favour and 67 against it.
