Joint Sitting re-endorses Paro Dzongkhag Thromde boundary map passed in the 5th session of the second parliament

Posted on :31 May 2016

As per the resolution of 6th session of the 2nd Parliament, on behalf of the government, the Minister for Works and Human Settlement presented the report on Paro Dzongkhag Thromde to the Joint Sitting of the Parliament today. The Minister briefed the house on the revised Paro Dzongkhag Thromde boundary map submitted by the Paro Dzongkhag Tshogdu.  It was  pointed out that the revised map submitted by Paro Dzongkhag doesn't address the concerns on  riceland being declared as Thromde as expressed earlier by the people of  the  Dzongkhag. Further, the Minister also underlined that important institutions like dzong and its surrounding areas have been excluded from the Thromde boundary. For these reasons, the Minister proposed to the house to re-endorse the Paro Dzongkhag Thromde map  which was already passed during the 5th session of this Parliament.


After extensive deliberation considering all aspects,  most of the members acknowledged that the Dzongkhag Thromde map endorsed in the 5th session is more appropriate for the people of the dzongkhag as submitted by the Minister. The house based on the section 67 of Chapter 6 of Legislative Rules of Procedure 2011 for the joint sitting of the parliament re-endorsed the Paro Dzongkhag Thromde map passed in the 5th session of the second parliament without resorting to voting.
