Why should the people vote for you?

I am very honest, and I truly want to serve my nation as a law maker.

I left the greener pasture of Australia because I want to serve my nation selflessly and do something for the unemployed youth and to work towards the economic development of our nation by framing the required laws and policies which will be favourable for the economic development of our nation.

I want to solve the financial crisis and youth unemployment. I want to advice  the government to implement policies, which would give gainful employment within our country so that youth don’t have to go to other countries to work.

I am selfless and I want to serve the general mass with utmost dedication and faith. I want to make sure our country becomes self reliant so that we can be proud to call ourselves the sons and daughters of Pelden Drukpa.
