Sangay Ngedup, the PDP founder issues challenge to DPT president in anticipation of 2013 elections.
Bhutanomics has managed to get its hands on this letter. Reprinted in full. A disgruntled PDP leader currently in parliament (short hair) had crushed the paper and thrown it in the bin before breaking in to tears.
Dear Jigmi Thinley,
It has been four years – I have been building a new life after what you did to me. You stabbed me in the back by pretending not to join politics till the last minute. There was only supposed to be PDP and Dzongda Penjor’s party. You and Zimba and Khandu are really jackals.
Luckily my daddy gave me lot of work to do. My brothers were not happy but my daddy and mummy gave them ultimatum to stand by the family in hard times. It took me four years to make the money to pay back all of PDP loans. Only four years and I have always been government big shot but never business man. Imagine how much I can make in ten years. In fact, Bhutan’s main problem is the economy and with my hidden talent (now blooming) for business, I think I am the best PM to revive Bhutan’s economy.
I am ready for 2013. While you are looking very old and ugly because of too much aeroplane air conditioning in jumbo jets, I am younger than ever. My hair is grown. It is lies that I had transplantation. It grew because of the temperate and tropical climate of Punakha and Phuentsholing, and because I did not have the stress of looking after the country which I had been doing for so long before 2008.
I have also got the common man’s touch now. I stopped talking to everyone I knew after losing elections to that joker teacher. I also avoided all the government people who came to see me. So I was left alone with the businesses given by daddy to me. I came to know Ap Daw, Thikadhar Madan, forest rangers, tourist guides, truck drivers and momo shop owners. In Jaigaon I have friends in all the hardware shops and my barber is also from there. His name is Nirmal from Nepal and he works in Hair Beauty Salone and Message Parlar. I think the spelling is wrong but he is the best haircutter for my hair. Every month I comb it once and cut 1 millimeter at the tip.
What I want to say is that I am very much in touch with common man. Common man really killed me with his internet posts in 2008. Now I have met him and we are friends. So in 2013, there will be no gossip about me. I will beat that joker teacher or his twin brother the joker NC chairman whoever. I will beat you. I am watching the US presidential debates and practicing also. I am writing this so your heart will pound in the high altitudes of your holiday resort.
Jigmi, you have the PM’s chair, the foreign travel, GNH, all the chamchas who deserted me, cars, business, wealth and power. What do I have? I have hair. As I write this I have asked the driver to speed up and left the window and sun roof open. My hair is flying in the wind. When was the last time you had that feeling?
Stop hiding in the mountains after a thrashing in the UN vote. I got thrashed in 2008 and I stayed hiding in Punakha and Phuentsholing. You are running into the mountains. Chicken shit.
My gun is loaded, the sights are set and you Jigmi are in the cross hairs.
Give my love and this photograph to your wife Rinzi darling. She will always be my first lady.
In anticipation of a new outcome in 2013,
HE Lyonpo S Ngedup
Vice-President of the Damchen Multinational Company
