The House deliberates on the Status Report of implementation of Resolutions of the First Session.

Posted on :27 May 2019

The House deliberated on the Action Taken Reports concerning the resolutions on the Chamkhar Chhu Hydropower Project, retention of post of Gaydrungs, the Qualification and Skills Criteria for Gaydrungs and possibility of placing Gaydrungs under Civil Service, and on the opening of entry for tourists from border towns like Samdrup Jongkhar, Gelephu, Samtse, Nganglam and Panbang.

 

It was reported that due to the probability of more expenditure and less income from Chamkhar Chhu Hydropower Project, it was not included in the 12FYP. During the deliberation, the Return on Investment was also highlighted. Prime Minister mentioned that the benefit from a hydropower project will benefit the country as a whole, not just the people of locality. He mentioned that the Sunkosh Hydropower project is included in the 12FYP due to its scope for higher productivity and advantages.

 

With regards to the retention of the post of Gaydrungs and the Creation of Qualification and Skills Criteria and the possibility of placing Gaydrungs under Civil Service, the Minister of Home and Cultural Affairs reported that the Gaydrung should be bilingual (Eng-Dzo) within the age of 18-40yrs of age when joining and should be from the gewog. The Minister informed that the retention of Gaydrungs has been extended for three more years on contract basis but when it comes to the possibility of placing Gaydrungs under Civil Service, it was reportedly denied. After a detailed deliberation in the issue, the House requested Home Ministry to look into the matter once again and explore the possibility of placing Gaydrungs under the Civil Service.

 

In the presentation of Status Report to open entry for tourists from border towns like Samdrup Jongkhar, Gelephu, Samtse, Nganglam and Panbang, the Minister of Home and Cultural Affairs requested for more time since it requires in-depth studies before opening up the entry gates. The Minister promised that the entry for the tourists from the border town will be opened during the 12FYP but there is still more studies and stakeholder consultations yet to be done to open the gates now.

 

The Presentations and deliberation on Report of the Status of implementation of Resolutions of the First Session will continue tomorrow after the Question and Answer session.
