Kudos !!! Bhutanomics, our very own Nostradamus with predictions of Doma Tshering as Bhutan’s future Foreign Secretary is already coming true with her getting selected as the director of MDA, through a so called open competition (ha ha ha). Well it’s an achievement for Bhutanomics but bad news for Bhutan’s fight against corruption, Dzongkha promotion and civil servants’ morale.
Will it be right to say – Doma’s selection was influenced by the invincible hands of corruption. If so, it frustratingly confirms the puppetry status of the RCSC including the Chairman. It undermined the credibility of RCSC. It also wretchedly confirms bleak future for development of Dzongkha our National Language. It also confirms the nonsense of the weightage given for rural posting. These may not be allegations but possible facts as explained below. And may be this is an opportunity for ACC to venture into new areas. There is a definitely a good case in this case.
There were four candidates, three from MoFA and one from elsewhere.
2. Why no future for Dzongkha, our national language – a grave concern for DDC
As per the selection scoring sheet, 5 marks are allotted for written Dzongkha. Going by the feedbacks of the candidates, Doma should be getting much lesser marks. Two of them including Doma could not write Dzongkha properly. They did not even understand the questions. Ha ha ha. So when the country is supposedly making huge efforts in promoting Dzongkha, on the other hand, government officials trying for an executive level position cannot even read Dzongkha. This only confirms Dzongkha is not important. DDC can easily confirm this! Ha ha ha. DDC your existence is a joke.
3. Weightage on rural posting is a farce
As per the BCSR 2010, 8 marks are allotted for rural posting and Doma and 3 others from MoFA should not get any marks for this as it is obvious from their posting history and infact if RCSC wants to seriously pursue the intended policy and objective of giving bonus marks for rural posting, Doma and other candidates from MoFA should be getting even negative points due to their many foreign postings. Isn’t foreign posting opposite to rural posting. Ha ha ha again.
All those civil servants serving or having served in rural areas and believe that they will get bonus points during such open competitions is just a myth. It will not make any difference. Sadly and uselessly, BCSR 2012 goes all the way in even detailing the calculations of points for rural postings, as if it is going to make big difference. Ha ha ha.
