Dear Prime Minister,
A massive political wave in the sweeping the country, leading us for the much awaited second general election. Our nation is yearning for such a son of the soil that has all the needed qualities that needs to be in a true patriot, and in a good leader. Let him forget his very personal benefits, his near and dear ones, be able to remain very high above his own party. Let him feel peoples’ problems as his own, and prefers to be with people more than on his official chair and cheap foreign trips (unless necessary). Our nation is seriously ill. In other word, almost paralysed. The disease has been diagnosed as DEEP ROOTED CRONIC CORRUPTION. That is similar to deadly cancer in modern medical terminology. The root of the syndrome has spread so far and wide that it is really hard to trace its origin and linkage. But, somehow or by some means much affected and rapidly growing organs and tissues have been detected lately. Which is good.
Now, my few questions here for you – as a leader of the ruling party, as PM of this great nation and as a long time serving son of this soil are:
1. Are you desiring to be the Prime Minister of Bhutan again? Do you see in yourself the expected qualities of leadership as stated above?
2. How many Minjur Dorjis and Jigme Tshultims are you fielding during this election?
3. What parameters are you giving to the public to test that the one whom you are fielding this time are not Minjurs and Jigmes?
4. Are you ready to let the people know how you differentiate Legislature and Executive – VS – Judiciary in Democracy?
5. Are you in position to address the nation and people before the election stating that why you deceived the nation and people for five good years by letting Minjur and Jigme Tshultim have such an esteemed positions in the nation?
6. How do you define GNH in connection with yours, Minjur Dorji’s and Jigme Tsulthim’s family and families living in the country? Who in your view is happier?
7. Do you think the outside world know this too?
People, for sure, are longing to ask these questions to you, but a type of unseen fear has always existed in them. You know why? The roots of the disease as stated above threatens them round the clock. This trend has existed in our society for a long time, and it has very well benefitted people in power and undermined the very needs and sufferings of the people. Our constitution has guaranteed freedom of speech and expression, also has guaranteed transparency. The truth is the people are actually seeking transparency in the nation’s vast resources. People assume that the annual income of the nation from natural resources is very high, together with foreign aid and public tax. But, when its time to build even small structures in the countryside, the first and foremost answer from the government will be NO BUDGET. And we are a small nation with very manageable size of population. If you want the list of such representative cases I shall bring through this forum shortly.
We the people expect answers from you our PM. If you fail to do so or ignore this as PM, you are actually cheating and deceiving the people and and the nation. People at any cost do not want Minjur Dorji and Jigme Tshultim serve us any more.
