Despite Saturday off being given for a while there is still some confusion and debate …


  1. I would say wrong guy to talk on democracy…. when he is involved in one of the biggest scams of modern day history of Bhutan..


  3. I feel sorry for the country that we have a biggest crook and bully as the Speaker of the National Assembly. I have no doubt in my mind that he was the mastermind behind the land scam because he wanted to show how powerful he is by distributing the Government land as if it is his own father’s land. 

    Now, to get away from the scam, he has decided not to contest in next election. No matter what , the crook should be put behind bar. But I won’t be surprised if the Court says since he didn’t benefit he is let go. Land is registered in his son’s name, that is enough to convict him.

  4. Look at the way he has raised his own kids ??? Both his sons get in trouble with the law. They fight with the police and create havoc wherever they go. We have him as a National Speaker who can’t take care of his own house. 

  5. If that is the case the public should sue him to the court. The civil society of Bhutan should be strong enough to prevent such crooks take constitutional positions like this.

  6. @ Dema…sounds like you have been a victim of his sons…Personal Grudge huh?

  7. What sort of speech he has delivered??????????????????????
