After greeting the people, the
PDP president informed the gathering of the new political parties in the fray.

He then went on to explain PDP’s ideology
– Wangtse Chhirpel (power to the people) stressing on the need to empower the local government, and promised the people to provide the need-based facilities at the grassroots level.
A question from the audience to the president asked on the return of the Prado Soelra.
“It was not at all a Soelra. Who wouldn’t want to cherish a Soelra from His Majesty the King? For every kidu that is being granted, a kasho comes along with it. The Prado didn’t,” he said.
The other question was on Rupee crisis. To this, he said that a lot of unnecessary expenditures have been made such as the McKinsey project and others to aggravate the problem.
“We have not reached a situation where spending has been completely restricted. We can route the spending to the needy things like buying power tillers for villages and others,” he said.
