DNT opened its regional office in Trashigang
Coinciding with the 9th coronation day of His Majesty The King, Druk Nyamrup Tshogpa (DNT) opened its regional office at Trashigang. The office was opened by the President and the General Secretary of DNT who were accompanied by twenty (20) candidates of the party across the country.
They were received by hundreds of party workers from six Dzongkhags of the east. More than 350 people offered their wishes and Khadar during the office opening ceremony which included businessmen, well-wishers, civil servants and local people.
The press release from the DNT states that, Trashigang was chosen for its regional office as it is not only the largest Dzongkhag among all 20 Dzongkhags but is also located strategically in the centre with easy access to all the other Dzongkhags.
In addition to that, the location of the regional office is a step towards the party’s focus in the east prior to developing its manifesto. The press release states that, the party intends to bridge the growing gap and to include major development towards rapidly developing the east.
The press release further stated that the party had consulted closely with its party workers in understanding major concerns such as unemployment, goongtom, and market for farmers and the bad condition of roads.
Meanwhile, the regional office in Trashigang will serve to coordinate among the party’s Dzongkhag offices and also enable party workers to interact among themselves. The party workers from across eastern Bhutan will consult with people from all walks of life in their respective constituencies and submit concerns, provide informa- tion and make suggestions through the regional office to party head office in Thimphu.
This is intended to make decision to make transparent and democratic within the party. It hopes to set example by building a political institution that practices democratic making decision starting from the grassroots.
The party president, Dr. Tandin Dorji during the party office opening, raised concern on division created by politics and the need to unify as one Bhutanese. Dr. Tandin Dorji said that there is a need to secure our future and that the way to do that is through working together.
“Securing our Future: Together we Can,” he said. He reminded the party workers on our unique Bhutanese democracy from its origin to the fact that it was a Democratic Constitutional Monarchy.
Meanwhile, to mark the occasion of the 9th Coronation day, DNT members prayed for His Majesty’s health and wellbeing.
Their message to the people of Bhutan says that unlike other democracies, ours is “Democratic constitutional monarchy which all the people of Bhutan and political parties must not forget, they also shared Nyamrup’s mission which is to lift the poorer society and narrowing the gap between rich and poor and the party consulted with the people and understand their major concerns to include in Nyamrup’s people manifesto.
