Vi­sion of Green Geleg­phu, “Tsh­er­ing Norbu an as­pi­rant Thrompon can­di­date

Bhutan Times - - Home - Deki Lhadon/ Geleg­phu

In­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment, waste man­age­ment and town plan­ning are some of the con­cerns of Tsh­er­ing Norbu, Gele­phu Thrompon can­di­date from Trashiling Demkhong.

The can­di­date has B. Sce. Hon­ours Com­puter Sci­ence from Sherubtse Col­lege, Kan­glung. He worked as ICT Of­fi­cer at Zhem­gang dzongkhag fol­lowed by Pro­ject Man­ager and ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor at M/s Nor­gay Con­struc­tion Pvt. Ltd and M/s KN Con­struc­tion Pvt. Ltd, Geleoghu re­spec­tively.

As per Tsh­er­ing, the con­struc­tion of fresh roads in the ex­tended area of the town and resur­fac­ing the roads which needs se­ri­ous fol­low ups will be one of the ma­jor is­sues that he will be look­ing into.

“Con­tin­u­ous as­sess­ment and mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem shall be es­tab­lished to man­age the set up and main­te­nance of street lights in our Throm.” Said Tsh­er­ing.

Fur­ther, foot­path for the pedes­tri­ans and stu­dents, and a sep­a­rate cy­cling track will be given the paramount im­por­tance.

Tsh­er­ing also said a strict mon­i­tor­ing will be fo­cussed for qual­ity in­ter­nal drainage sys­tem as Gelepghu has been af­fected by heavy flood es­pe­cially in Aipole and Sheytekhari dur­ing mon­soon sea­son which poses a great threat to hu­man life and fer­tile agri­cul­tural land.

As per him, though Geleg­phu hasn’t faced waste man­age­ment till date peo­ple should not be too con­sid­er­ate and re­lax pro­duc­ing waste. “We must learn from our very home to re­duce waste and proper dis­posal. We need to sen­si­tize the con­sumers on the im­por­tance of waste man­age­ment af­ter all it needs to be col­lec­tively ad­dressed.”

He also men­tioned that “for now we see waste col­lec­tion only in Lo­cal Area Plan 1(LAP1) and Lo­cal Area Plan 2(LAP2) of the Throm which needs to be in­creased to cover larger area of the town and the fre­quency of col­lec­tion shall be in­creased to lit­er­ally man­age waste and fur­ther ‘Green’ our Geleg­phu Throm. It can be a good idea if the waste man­age­ment is out­sourced in fu­ture.”

“The town plan­ning at times seems ham­pered due to lack of ad­vo­cacy or lack of in­for­ma­tion to fel­low peo­ple of Geleg­phu Throm in in­volv­ing them for de­vel­op­men­tal progress.” He men­tioned.

More­over may be due to lack of tech­ni­cal ex­per­tise the de­vel­op­men­tal move of Geleg­phu town seems bit slow “There­fore, it is my per­sonal urge to strate­gi­cally struc­ture the de­vel­op­men­tal pro­ce­dure with best ex­per­tise to speed up the progress of a ‘model town,” he added.
