To commemorate the 10th Royal Wedding Anniversary, de-suups hoisted more than 2,000 of His Majesty’s Zhabten prayer flags along the Kuenselphodrang road leading to the Buddha Statue yesterday. Zhung Dratshang’s Laytshog Lopon Sangay Dorji presided over the cleansing ritual of the Lungdhar. Coordinated by the former prime minister Dasho Tshering Tobgay and the De-Suung office, the specially designated Lungdhar has the inscription of Long Life Prayers for His Majesty The King. Members of the Parliament attended the prayer flags hoisting programme along with 500 de-suups.

Meanwhile, the online entertainment platform Samuh offered special viewership programmes for de-suups as a gesture of admiration for their service, and in commemoration of the 10th Royal Wedding Anniversary.

Under Samuh’s De-Suung Kadrin Gatshor programme, de-suups deployed on border duty can access Samuh for free for a period of two months. Additionally, all other de-suups not on border duty are eligible for a 50 percent discount on the basic Samuh subscription plan from October 2021 to March 2022.
