These MPs have anything but common sense. They should have known how to show their solidarity and support to their Minster and speaker. Whom, How and where. Not in the court! They should have guided the speaker (who may not be in normal mood) and his security personal on how to conduct themselves in the eyes of public and more so to the media which are observing this case very closely. But like an unsuspecting child they made a show of drama with full of colours, some carrying bags although their job is security. This was shown on BBS. Such a display of power or influence in public, I think, people did not like it as is apparent from this forum.Times have changed and we must adapt and change if we are to survive. We must show respect to the public opinion if we believe in democracy. As leaders, our MPs must not only say but also show and set example in public. They must lead with example.
i am a true citizen! would like to share my view . when government ask Acc to look in front and walk fowawd but instead of looking ahead just turn back and digging out old cases. i feel mercy on our previous leader who served us and represent our king. If the committee member are also treat as currup and give punishment then working in the government is no more secure. More over that time there was no proper guide line proper procedure to go, still then our dzongdas tried there best to tackle with problems. Rules are changing and old rules become obsolete then treated or turn the old work into curruption. Bhutanese people has to think a lot.
If lyempo and speaker are considered for past impish deeds, what about low class civil servants who were suspended, jailed and prosecuted by ACC. Their deeds were minimal when compared to speaker’s and lyempo’s. Who supported these civil servants? Didn’t they serve government or people?
Every citizen has to be treated equally…….there should not be bias in implementing rules.
It is not a question of grudge against our Hon’ble MPs who were seen together many times with the alleged personalities in the Gyalpoizhing land case (see the BBS footage). We were confused as to why MPs had to follow people (who are alleged) till the court.
It is more of a question of ethics. Our MPs are the embodiment of the law and must be guided by the highest ethical standards all the time during the tenure of their offices. They are maker of the law. Perhaps, they should not be seen indirectly influencing during the implementation of the law. The three branches of government must exercise their own independence and jusrisdiction.
We should not set precedent that solidarity wins the case. Law is made based on majority votes in the parliament by the representatives of the people and therefore the law made by the majority must be made applicable to every individual. We do not really need majority support again during the implementation of any law unless law specifies that.
It is just a discourse on the ethical issues and food for throught. Please do not take otherwise. I have no grudge on anyone
