    Despite giving so many pledges only to garner votes will repeat the same of 2008. The candidate is still stranger for most of the gewogs in the constituency and still people prefer Ugyen Dorji the young and farsighted person comparing to Mr. Mingbo who by now might have forgotten the functionality of offices after his ever defeat in 2008. His management record as an administrator will be known if someone interested can ask BBS and district he served before. May this will be his last attempt or give third attempt in 2018. For now say straightaway “NO” because people want their MP from a party who has leader having enough experience, have been shouldered higher responsibility not only after 2008 but even before, who is senior and having better leadership quality, whose service should be well recognised by our kings and people of Bhutan, having served as Secretary and Ministerial portfolio. All the best but sorry this time.
