His Majesty The King granted Dhar to the Chairpersons of the Dzongkhag Tshogdu of 20 dzongkhags at Lingkana Palace in Punakha. 

The Chairpersons (Thrizin) of the Dzongkhag Tshogdu, which is the highest decision making body in the dzongkhag, are elected from among the local government leaders of the dzongkhag. 

Elaborating on the Royal Vision for Bhutan and concerns for our future shared during the National Day Address last year, His Majesty reminded the Thrizins that their every initiative must be guided by how best it would benefit the people and help them prosper.
