Namgyal was greeted with a parade on his return to Ladakh earlier this week.
New Delhi: The BJP MP from Ladakh, Jamyang Tsering Namgyal whose speech in support of the government's move to scrap Article 370 went viral and earned praise from Prime Minister Narendra Modi, celebrated India's 73rd Independence Day with a short dance that was caught on video by news agency ANI.
In the 28-second video, Namgyal was seen wearing sunglasses and a dark brown 'goucha' (traditional Ladakhi dress for men), and leading a line of fellow dancers.
Tsering Namgyal, 34, emerged a hit on social media after a Lok Sabha speech backing the government's contentious decision to end special status for Jammu and Kashmir.
Namgyal was greeted with a parade on his return to Ladakh earlier this week. He posted a video of himself waving the Indian flag and dancing, again.
