I am from Wangphu gewog which falls under Deothang-Gomdar constituency. It was bifurcated from Gomdar gewog. It is small gewog that host sixteen villages, 380 households with population of approximately three thousand. I was lucky that MP is from wangphu gewog. Lucky doesn’t mean his partiality over developmental activities or anything sort that the people may think. Lucky only justifies my indulgent frankly or with no tension in public meetings at geowog and village and the promises that he made during his campaign were all fulfilled.
My Cambridge Advanced Learner Dictionary says politician is a member of a government or law- making organization. I was in fact looking for something that will describe how and what type the politician should be. Should he/she be talkative or persuasive? What qualities doe’s politician should possess?
What should be the characteristics of politician? I think the qualities of politician are his natural characters, while may be some of the qualities are as a result of external influences. The best quality in politician is honesty and loving. Reliability and trustworthiness can rule the faithful and effective politician. The politician who is promising is naturally -backed by skills, experiences, intelligence and integrity. When all combine together they achieve their goals. What is he preaches must be captured and displayed through truth, sincerity, frankness and practice. The responsibility must be accounted to accountability. When he/she makes decision, he/she should accept responsibility for his/her actions and his words. The same should be when they deal with people. When he/she makes promises, he/she shouldn’t be otherwise for to keep the same. Loving people with all his heart, mind, soul, and power and striving to help them label them as a responsible politician.
No doubt, MP Ugyen DOrji suffices all above mentioned. He is a politician who keeps his words as the top priority. He speaks less wherever he is. Be it in the National Assembly hall or be it with the people, he always talks less but when he does, he targeted to the point.
The only major promises that he kept during his campaign was farm road to gewog and further to Yarphu via Pangthang village, electricity in the gewog and mobile services. Soon after DPT government started ruling the promises that he kept started flowing in one after another. Among all, first the gewog got its mobile services connectivity, both Tcell and Bmobile. When the people were struggling to get charged of their mobile phones from the solar batteries, soon the villages were brightened up with electricity. The seasonal mandarin business became so easy pertaining to the transportation when the snaky farm road made its way through the maize fields decorated with mandarin trees and rough terrains. Thus the major campaign promises were all fulfilled in Wangphu Gewog.
There are many accomplished minor developmental activities which is ultimate necessity of the people in the gewog. Two hostels for the students of Yarphu and Wangphu Community Primary School were constructed. Construction of BHU (Basic Health Unit) and gewog office were completed. The drinking water in the villages were renovated and supplied with extra pipelines. The crucial striving for the people when they have to feed water for their cattle during winter was sufficed when safe Drinking Water was made available in the sloppy terrain around Om Zor Nay. Anyone making a trip or journey through the gewog won’t have to get in the wet valley looking for streams.
Among all for the depriving parents and the hard working sons/daughters, the issue of Security Clearance Certificate (SCC) or No Objection Certificate (NOC) was resolved. Now we can see Wangphupa students pursuing higher studies to become doctor, engineer, teacher….
Seemed the gewog was waiting for to bifurcate from Gomdar. Soon it was bifurcated and DPT (Druk Phuentsum Tshogpa) government started functioning, the developmental activities started blooming like the sky with stars. I on behalf of the people of the gewog and on my own behalf I would like to thank DPT government and in particular our honorable MP Dasho Ugyen Dorji for the having developed the gewog which make people ease to work which ultimately is thy hundred percent fulfillment of promises and wish Dasho a good journey ahead for the upcoming election.
