The Prime Minister Lyonchhen Tshering Tobgay said that as requested by the Royal Civil Service Commission (RCSC) the government had prepared its evidences and was ready to drop then at RCSC.
The PM also expressed appreciation to the RCSC for accepting to keep the secretaries until the investigation on the issue was over.
He said that the government had earlier received the letter from the RCSC asking for the evidences.
It is expected that the government’s main evidence would include written correspondence with India, how it was done without seeking any government approval and other documents.
It is also expected that the government, as asked by the RCSC letter, will also point out the various violations of the RCSC Act and BCSR rules committed by the three secretaries.
The Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Economic Affairs Secretary and Foreign Secretary had been surrendered by the government to the RCSC in December 2014 mainly for not taking the government’s permission to write a strongly worded letter to the Indian government on corruption allegations in the BHEL and BVT case.
The letter had been written on behalf of the Royal Government of Bhutan without the RGoB’s clearance.
