  1. Sangay Khandu from Samtse and Rinzin Dorji From Punakha will not represent their people nor they represent their dzongkhag that i will gaurantee. Their voters are being betrayed by them. It is very simple if you raise a horse later it has to work for you the same thing they are being financed by DPT government to get proper qualification for them to contest in that area they have to fulfil DPT’s Desire. There presence in the house will drastically effect the smooth running of Apolitical house.

    DPT wants their people every where one day they will sponser people to contest in other parties and locall governments as well. DPT buys the peoples the good example is Sarpangs former NC and Punakha’s Namgay Penjore. When the head of the house is linked with ruling Government other members have less chances to correct and charge the Government.

  4. What about PDP’s Kaka Tshering of Paro? Is he then going to always speak against the DPT government? I don’t think the NC elected members would play politic in NC discussions. It’s in fact a great appreciation to DPT for allowing them to contest for Nc though they were worthy candidates for the party.
