Why should the people vote for you?

I am not participating in the NC elections because I am superior to the other candidates. I am doing so to fulfill my responsibility as a Bhutanese to serve and work for the welfare of our fellow citizens and for the security and sovereignty of our nation. I don’t like the statement “serving our King” because it is our King who is serving the people and nation in ways and means more so than we can ever repay. Therefore, it as my solemn responsibility to combine my passion for volunteerism and social service with my educational background in law to serve our nation and people.
