A star has been born today in the form of Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, Member of Parliament from Ladakh, popularly known to people as JTN as he gave a rousing speech in the favour of the state’s bifurcation for which the NDA government has moved the Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) Reorganisation Bill, 2019 in the Parliament.

The 33-year-old Jamyang Tsering Namgyal, one of the youngest MPs in the Lok Sabha from India’s largest parliamentary seat, geographically – Ladakh, pleasantly surprised spectators with his exemplary speech in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday supporting the effective abrogation of Article 370 and proposal to bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir into two Union territories.

Jamyang Namgyal was born in Matho village to Buddist parents. He completed his graduation from the Jammu University. He was also known in the political circles after he became a successful student leader in the Jammu University. Before plunging into politics, he had served in All Ladakh Student Association, Jammu, while becoming its President from 2011-12.

After joining politics as a member of BJP in Leh, he served as Private Secretary to the previous Member of Parliament from Ladakh Thupstan Chhewang. Later in 2015, Namgyal contested and won the election of Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council, Leh in 2015 from Martselang Constituency.

He was elected as Councillor in Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council in Leh. Jamyang Tsering Namgyal was elected as the Chief Executive Councillor to the Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council after the resignation of Dorjay Motup from the post of Chief Executive Councillor.

As 2019 Lok Sabha elections were announced, BJP was in search of a young candidate from the Ladakh region. JTN was decided as the candidate from Ladakh Parliamentary Constituency. He was elected at 17th Lok Sabha, representing Ladakh constituency, replacing his mentor Thupstan Chhewang.

With his speech, Jamyang Tsering Namgyal received rousing applause not only within the Lok Sabha but also from various quarters, with even the Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla noting how well the young MP spoke.
