In keeping with close Indo- Bhutan relationship, the Government of India has invited the new PM of Bhutan to visit India. A very kind gesture. Such a visit needs to be convenient to both Bhutan and India in sense of timing.
I hope the Bhutanese Parliament can convene and discuss and approve the 12th 5 year Plan before the India visit by our Prime Minister. It should be Bhutanese 12th 5 year plan not India approved plan in perception. Thats why the Bhutanese Parliament must convene to discuss and approve the Plan before the PM visit to India. Otherwise the Bhutanese PM would be discussing draft 12th Plan of Bhutan at New Delhi. And that would be a precedent of misfortune for the much yearned for Bhutanese sovereign dignity by majority of Bhutanese. The path to sovereign dignity must not be made more difficult by thoughtless and rash precedent set now.
Perception and Tendrel is important. In 2013, the 1st Cabinet Meeting of PDP formed government had the Ambassador of India to Bhutan sort of gracing it. And through out the 5 years 2013- 2018 period, by design or default, Bhutan had India leading in all national affairs of Bhutan including the Doklam transgression. Now if Bhutan PM visits India even before the 12th 5 year Plan is adopted by Bhutanese Parliament, then the state of Bhutanese national affairs could very well be similar to a state of the Indian Union.
Dhana or inauspicious month should not hold back the 1st Parliament session. The Cabinet has been formed and the Speaker already appointed. All the MPs have taken office. The 12 Plan is more or less ready.
Auspicious timing for the government and the Parliament is the day the MPs got elected and next is when they assembled at the Parliament Hall to register and receive their dakyen as MPs. After that the PM, the Speaker, the Opposition Leader and the Cabinet Ministers were given Dhars by the King. Parlianent session is just part of the 5 year tenure task of all MPs and governance of the nation. Not a fresh beginning of a new task for new members.
