Bhutan Times - - Home - Staff re­porter

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.
