Why should the people vote for you?

I have decided to contest for National Council primarily to ensure that all the laws, plans and policies reviewed, amended and initiated are understood clearly by every citizen especially at the grass root level as they are confused right now. Moreover, Wangdue dzongkhag is one of the largest dzongkhags while not many contestants came forward to participate in the previous National Council election. Therefore, I want to give people more choice this time.

It was my work experience with BBS as a programme presenter where I had to always keep my audience informed with daily business during the parliament sessions over the last few years. Moreover, this has equipped me with more knowledge about the role of policy makers and as a people’s representative.

Why should the people vote for you?

People should vote for me because I am a very straight forward and morally upright person. I will serve Tsawa-Sum from my heart with loyalty and dedication. Moreover, I have exhibited my integrity and sincerity in working for the cause and issues of the people on policies and developmental desires during my five year term as a member of parliament from 2008 to 2013. I do not hold any reservation or hesitation in speaking out the voice of the people in parliament. For me the interest of the people always comes first.

I feel I would be the right person to bridge between the people, His Majesty The King and the country.

Why should the people vote for you?

As architects, we are increasingly aware of humanitarian, disasters, environment, social and political issues, which impact our vulnerable communities.  I am determined to address the growing challenges with my youthful vigour, innovative ideas and long-term vision. Construction industry can be a major part of our national economy. Unlike most other economic sectors, construction activities are widely dispersed throughout the country. Quality construction in gewogs and thromdes provides long term value. We have to build more but we also have to build better. Good standards of construction must never be sacrificed in pursuit of the cheapest option. That can be achieved through good legislation in place.

People are looking for a trust worthy representative, a person who understands problems and who aspires to fulfill their needs and wants, an individual with realistic plans, so I feel I am prepared for the job. Similarly the fact that I have been endorsed as a candidate with highest ‘Yes’ votes percentage and encouraging assurance from people of Wangdue Phodrang Dzongkhag shows the trust and confidence they have on me. With better understanding of national policies, geo-political scenario, I pledge to serve with dedication for another term as your representative.

It is important that people choose the right candidate as their representative who will be serving the Tsawa-Sum.The right representative should look after the wellbeing of the people and be dedicated to his task.
