First public pledge more Prisons and witch hunts by DNT Party formed government. Great vengeance goings for a Party but horror for a nation. For a while there was a light of hope for national unity and moving on in unison with real national priorities. Now this new DNT pledge by the Prime Minister.
Why feel insecure DNT Party even after being declared the comfortable winner and taking the reign of governance? There is no call to eliminate all semblance of oppositions or difference of opinion in democracy unless the intent is to murder the essence of the lauded gift of democracy. Election is over but scores to settle a galore!
First public commitment to built additional prisons in all 20 Dzongkhags instead of hospitals or schools. First public commitment to witch hunt fake account holders to fill the new prisons instead of creating job opportunities for jobless people. Revolutionary means of solving lack of employment opportunities.
Certainly not a national government in objective. A Political Party Cabinet with national mandate to fulfill political vengeance or simply side tracking campaign pledges. I thought all one time DNT pledges were doable. Full employment is just a vision but improvements is real possiblility. Alas! The Party is set upon a campaign of election period vengeance the next 5 years. A sure path to national discord and social fear for national lifetime.
Fake accounts and false propaganda posts surged during the elections. Could be political party inspired also rather than only individual doings. DNT Party, too, cannot be totally innocent. But such things do not warrant national governance priority. These malicious wind of politics simmer down naturally if fair and positive governance takes hold after the election.
I did not believe this new DNT Party political vengeance mantra until a video was shared on the 1st declared priority of the new government. And still I feel it is a joke in bad taste. However, persecution has never guranteed the life lasting authotity of a dictator. Unfortunately terror regimes have destroyed societies and nations all over the world. Prayers may not help but still prayers must be offered for our tiny Druk Yul.
