Started my career as a teacher after PGCE in 2004; worked as a lecturer in Paro College of Education and is a Member of Parliament, National Council.

Why should the people vote for you?

People of Bumthang entrusted me with this rare privilege of serving as their representative in the National Council. I have learned many things in terms of policy review and lawmaking concerning various issues of national importance. With whatever experience I have gained by serving in the NC, if elected, I hope to contribute and complete some important tasks that could not be  completed in my first term owing to lack of time. I think it is important for NC to have people with experience, people who can listen to the issues of the constituents and also focus on national security and sovereignty.
