Why should the people vote for you?

While in school, I have been  with thousands of future generations, study their aspirations and expectations from teachers, parents and government. On contrary, I have also learnt the expectation of the parents from their sons and daughters.

Working in the area of constructions I have learnt the difficulties faced by contractors, shortage of engineers in dzongkhags, some ground facts for compromising the quality of works.

Since I was stationed in Trashiyangtse from birth till date, I have good knowledge of people. If I am given a chance to stand as the representative of Trashiyangtse in the National Council, I will address these problems.
