Why should the people vote for you?

With profound commitment and optimism, I am in constant pursuit of serving the King, Country and People with greater responsibilities and thus the National Council is the sacred parliamentary platform for my mission.

I contested in the  2nd NC election but could not sail through the gewog dhamngoi nomination. That, however, didn’t deter my hope and determination but rather deepened my political commitment. I thank the people of Phangkhar gewog for nominating me this time.

I always strive to contribute towards strengthening our country’s unity, harmony, security and sovereignty.

I commit to the service of humanity with humility.

Why should the people vote for you?

I came forward for the people and for their choice to elect the right representative.

I promise to give my best service to the people of Khengrig NamSum and the country at large.

I have worked in the dzongkhag as a teacher, willing to work with elected responsibilities for the dzongkhag and keep on working for dzongkhag hereafter. Therefore, if the people choose me to be their NC representative, I will focus on positive developmental change in the service of the Tsawa-Sum.
