Why should the people vote for you?

In my perception, people’s representative should be like them so that they could approach the representative and share their concerns openly. The representative will also interact and ask people about the pressing issues, be it in the community or national.

I can represent the people well as I have experiences from the ground. I have been a farmer, a cowboy,  worked in the quarry and hotel.

Only the person who knows the problem can understand and represent well.

I have learned that there are humble people in all communities.

Please vote for me not because I am qualified or capable but because we are all same.

All I want to be is the true representative of Samdrupjongkhar people.

Bachelor in Science

Work experience

Human Resource Development Officer

Founder of a travel agent

Why should the people vote for you?

I feel formulation of legislations and policies need men and women so that the laws respond to the different interest and needs.

I want my voters to understand the importance of women’s participation in politics and also encourage them to envision a hope and aspiration that one day their daughters and sisters will also stand for elections, win and represent them in the Parliament.

I want them to dream big for their daughters and sisters.

I come from a humble family and I am a daughter of a farmer. I experienced the hardships of  rural life, battled poverty and worked hard to get where I am today. I can connect and relate to the hardship and challenges faced by rural folks and render help.

Samdrupjongkhar has tremendous potential to develop into an economic hub. So, I will work hard to review policies and facilitate laws that would enable Samdrup  Jongkhar to harness its economic potential.

Human Resources Development and Adm. Officer

Why should the people vote for you?

I am offering a choice to the people, as Samdrupjongkhar did not have many candidates in the past two elections.

Being a son of a farmer, I know the challenges, problems and issues in the village. Therefore, I feel it is the right time, age, and way to serve the people and repay the government.

My sixteen and half years of service in the Department of Revenue and Customs have groomed me in law enforcement, while one half years in Army Welfare Project as an administrator has added confidence in administration and management.

If elected I would prioritize in speedy repeal of obsolete laws and reform legislations applicable towards regional balanced development. Through equity and justice, I will ensure that basic rights are not compromised.

I will also focus on old age homes and orphanage. Represent as a candidate for voice of the voiceless.
