The year 2008, it hasn't been much of a time ever since we began the newest journey in the year; Ten year since and very glad to still feel the sense of belonging to the past good years. I don't know if this is the feeling every citizens of Bhutan gets, but I have lot more stronger attachment to the past. Time is flying so fast, without the notice of a nostrils and the clearest of the eyesight. And a lot of things have happened in those 10 years.
It's 2018, ten years after the first ever democratic election in Bhutan. Political parties are gearing up for the elections and people are trying their best to caste vote still contemplating if it will be worth it, after all.
While all goes well in the beginning after the election and victory, things begins to take turns towards the end of the Govt. tenure and the next election. A lot of things came into the limelight in 2013, which directly or indirectly interfered the election, almost the same trend has been following this time around too. Court cases, defamation, corruption, embezzlement and misuse are some of the issues which come into limelight in every time the election approaches. Nobody can't deduce if whatever happens is politically motivated or is just because things come up as it is, but people have been watching everything that's happening around.
As is the nature of ruling and opposition, a lot of digging out has been doing by both the parties lately. Issues as old as five to ten years has been coming into the limelight, one side trying to spoil the image of the other and the other trying to defend.
If this blame game is not a Cold war, what do we call this?
While the opposition and ruling has been doing a lot of blame game, other political parties are gearing up and taking advantage of the situation. And everyone's lips talks of this.
While it is the trend that every democratic country watch, the people make this own choice but then with lots of doubt that 'if who they vote is the right one?'
