LG: Many are preparing for the upcoming second local government (LG) election that will be held soon.
What kind of candidates people choose to represent them will matter given the development project waiting for the gewogs and villages.
Dophu from Bemji said he’s heard of five Gup candidates from Nubi gewog, including the incumbent Gup.
“But I have a candidate in my mind who I will vote for,” said Dophu.
Whoever becomes the Nubi Gup, people want him to bring a reliable irrigation channel.
Dophu said that there is a need to consolidated drinking water sources. People in Bemji village are drinking from two sources which could be combined.
Sonam Lhamo, 43, said she has also heard about a few who have declared their interest to participate in the election. She said all the contestants are capable, including the present Gup.
Ugyen Dem, a farmer, said she wants the primary school in Bemji to be upgraded. “We find difficult it to send our children to other schools like Tshangkha and Trongsa,” she said.
