Why should the people vote for you?

“Leadership for difference; for your voice through my action”.

The basic reason is that I’m answering the nation’s call by fulfilling my duty as a citizen in making our young democracy stronger. Giving a choice for people of Tsirang to choose the right leader to lead Tsirang. Being a farmer and also coming from farming background I am confident that I can better represent Tsirang through agriculture policy reforms where by creating more job opportunity in this field.

As a youth I am confident to represent youth group as well in better ways by rendering necessary support to overcome unemployment and youth problems.

As a NC candidate the above mentioned points are to be fulfilled in serving Tsawa-Sum only through policies and planning, keeping in mind National Council is a house of review.

Why should the people vote for you?

NC member is one of the mediators between the public and the government for review of laws I would work as one.  I will ensure transparency on legislation and review of laws to overcome some of the issues like unemployment, women and child protection and entrepreneurship.

To overcome the gap between rich and poor, focus and need to review and formulate the legislation is important.  Tourism being one of the main revenue sources in the country, southern dzongkhags needs to open to eco-tourism. For the agriculture sector, I think crop protection bill is a must for farmers in order to have sustainable farm practice.

I have travelled to almost every corner of the dzongkhag even before I decided to contest the NC election. This has helped me understand issues facing the people as well as economic opportunities that remain untapped. We need a leader to exploit the opportunities for the maximum benefit of the people, especially in villages. Having worked and interacted with the people for the last seven years in my village and all 12 gewogs, I am confident that I will contribute to the dzongkhag’s development.  Given the opportunity, I will serve the people of Tsirang as a true representative. In my service to the Tsawa-Sum, some of my priorities would be reducing the gap between the rich and the poor.

Qualification

Bachelor of Business Management

Work experience

Customer services representative of a multinational company in Bangalore, India

Golf course manager and free-lance tour guide in Bhutan

Why should the people vote for you?

Tsirang dzongkhag has diverse cultural community settlements in 12 gewogs, therefore, they do have a problem in understanding and reading Dzongkha terminologies, which are important in our country especially in decision making and lawmaking.

Therefore, being their representative in the highest legislative body, one should be good at communication and in conveying the policies and law to the people.

I worked as a customer services representative in a multinational company in Bangalore, while in Bhutan as a Golf Course Manager and freelance tour guide.

That’s why with those calibres in me they should vote for me as their representative.
