  1. Its such a pity that our society is so naive and ill informed and the population gets carried away by the false promises of selfish politicians. In real sense the armed forces should never be discussed in their political dialogues. They have nothing to do with the armed forces. Does the South Thimphu candidate knows anything about the budgetary allocations of the armed forced?. Does she know our Govt doesn’t have any hand in that. Pension to the retired personnel of the armed forces????, is she going to cough that out from her pocket?. She or anybody for that matter first should understand whats its all about and yap. Just for the sake of votes dont just give a shot in the dark blindly. For heave’s sake please leave the armed forces aside………..and involve in healthy political talks in the larger interest of the nation. One should never venture into the unknown areas for own personnel greed and self interest

    • Bravo Bravo ” Ha Ha Ha”. Now bhutan is left on the hand of Triple Gem – Kenchog Sum. I have confident on citizens that they know finally where to be voted. Lets join our hands and pray.
