Where shall Lyonpo Minjur go? What shall he do? Followed orders from his superiors and now finds himself carrying the penalties for their crime. Unfair? Angry? Yes but what can he do?
He dug this hole himself. As have all the DPT MPs. They have their noses up the PM’s bottom. They acted as if the party didn’t exist without Jigmi Thinley. They made it a one man show. Never in the last four and half years have even one MP or one minister stood up to Jigmi Thinley’s errors of judgment. He has made many mistakes but without any checks on him, the mistakes became the burden of his fellow MPs and bureaucrats aligned to him.
Minjur has no option but to look to Jigmi Thinlay to throw him some bones. To say what is right and oppose Jigmi Thinlay now would be wholly uncharacteristic. People would say the only time Minjur stood up to the Prime Minister was to save his own skin. It would not be convincing. So DPT ministers and MPs must live with the devil they created. Justly deserved. But for us common people, we beg the DPT to infuse democracy into the party so that we are represented by our 47 representatives in the assembly and 20 in the council, not ruled by one DPT president.
As for Minjur, he should at best look forward to some semi-governmental post after 2013. Some constitutional post or ambassadorship or special envoyship but his days are numbered. Minjur, a good man, forgot that the foundation for his career should be his assets and instead decided to build castles in the air by kissing ass. Next time try biting.
