Nation-wide cleaning campaign to observe 10th Anniversary of His Majesty’s reign
To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of His Majesty the King’s accession to the Golden Throne, a Nation Wide Cleaning Campaign will be conducted on December 9, 2016.
Videoconferencing with the Dzongdags of 20 Dzongkhag from Thimphu yesterday, Prime Minister Tshering Tobgay said, “the real gift to His Majesty the King would be to sustain the cleaning campaign to keep our beautiful country clean.”
Lyonchen also reminded the Dzongdas about His Majesty’s noble command, “Where we live must be clean, safe, organized, and beautiful, for national integrity, national pride, and for our bright future. This too is nation building.”
While all Dzongdas will be taking the lead role in this national endeavor in the cleaning campaign, they will also be submitting different programs and strategies to sustain this national initiative in all times to come. The initiative will cover all the villages, chiwogs, gewogs, dungkhags, trekking routes, streams, rivers and others. The cleaning campaign on December 9, which will be declared as National Holiday, would however, be conducted by volunteers.
