Response to ‘DoR work floods Paro airport and turns NEC into a paper tiger’
Just because there seems to be a lapse in managing the mines, it does not mean we demean our much treasured water resources. As pointed out by some colleagues here, is it right for anyone to do the following ? (a) Constrict the river width (b) dig up the entire river bed under the pretext of dredging (c) carry on such adhoc activities and brain wash people saying that it is in the interest of better road and improving security. I pray that we should maintain the pristine Pachhu as a beautiful river and not transform it into an ugly concrete drain. Just because DoR has a valid clearance does not give them the right to spoil and kill our river ecology disregarding all the terms that are spelt out in those clearances.

The government seems to be overactive where it should leave people alone and nonexistent where it should be active. What ails this little land of so much potential?
Response to ‘Zero tolerance for Honesty’
In one of the dzongkhags i worked, the procurement officer, had his house full of BPBL products from the bed to the TV stand. Funny thing is all the dzongkhag items were ordered from BPBL which means commission plus extra furniture and so open corruption. As the author rightly said, it is not the flaw in the rule or act but it is the flaw more at the stage of implementation and procedure.
Response to ‘The power of social media, how will it play 2013?’
It’s human nature. In the US the Republicans are whining while they are out of power, and the Democrats did the same when George Bush was in power.
I believe the DPT party workers were also very active when the PDP was expected to win in 2008. It’s as cyclical as the cycle of life.

I got the opportunity to listen to some of the answers the Honorable Agriculture Lyonpo made yesterday on BBS. While I never had any disagreement with the objective (Environment), I would like to very humbly submit that I quite disagree with most of the justifications not because I belong to some organization or party but because they are simply not ok.
