Bhutan Times - - Home - Sonam Pen­jor

His Majesty The King vis­ited Sarpang Town, where 81 shops and huts were dam­aged in a fire on Sun­day, and met with the peo­ple on the 19th of Feb. 2015.

His Majesty also granted a sep­a­rate au­di­ence to the heads of the af­fected fam­i­lies. His Majesty com­mended the gov­ern­ment, armed forces, BIFA and De­su­ups for whole­heart­edly as­sist­ing the of­fice of the Gyalpoi Zim­pon in ad­min­is­ter­ing re­lief ef­forts im­me­di­ately af­ter the dis­as­ter.

His Majesty ex­pressed deep­est em­pa­thy for the af­fected peo­ple, who are from both Bhutan and across the bor­der, for hav­ing lost so much.

“Hav­ing vis­ited the shops many times over the years, I know who you are, what you do, and what your hopes, as­pi­ra­tions, and dif­fi­cul­ties are. And so, I can com­pre­hend very well the mag­ni­tude of what you have lost,” His Majesty said.

Af­ter grant­ing them an op­por­tu­nity to de­scribe their needs and dif­fi­cul­ties, His Majesty re­as­sured the peo­ple that ev­ery­thing would be done to find ways to ease their trou­bles.

The af­fected fam­i­lies were granted Royal Semso.
