Effectively changed

The BBS reported today that the finance ministry has issued an office order announcing that the pay revision for MPs will be effective from 1st January 2009 and not 1st April 2008 as notified earlier.

Good.

  1. Seriously what’s going on…..so many back and forth. Though this announcement came to us as a relief, my question is, is it a game? I mean the Office Order???? So inconsistent!

  2. We have won this battle…but the war is on! Thanks for “our” efforts and contribution in correcting this mistake.

    Regards

  3. This constant flip-flopping from our “leaders” bears testimony to their greed. If no one notices and they can get away with it, they’ll benefit from it. If people catch wind of it and protest, they will quietly change their decision WITHOUT an apology or owning up to their scheme. Pathetic. Let’s move on, really.

  4. The FM was in a slumber, lets forgive him…and the PM where was he??????….um.
    This reflects a kind of insatiable greed of the ruling party..DPT. I guess the DPT has revealed bounty of greed. It`s been only a year….GUYS WE NEED TO BE KEEPING AN EAGLE EYE WATCH TO THE DPT.
    Anyway its good that the FM came into senses and did the right thing now.

  5. Did you see the recent Japanese FM’s press confernece at the G7 meeting

    this guy Wangdi Norbu is even worse.. He signs all docs when he is asleep. Then he needs a tight slap on this face from the Media to recover from his madness.

    God… they think Bhutanese people are so stupid.

    I seriously ask, can we last another 4 years????

  6. i m totally confused and got serious doubt if one can that easily modify parliament resolution once it was already passed?.if that so..very sad it has become so weak and inconsistent.

  7. Decisions such as that made by the finance minister are an insult to the institution of democracy in Bhutan. Nice try, but we are not buying the “misprint” excuse. And for Kuensel to print that – c’mon, it’s almost like the Finance Minister called up Kuensel and told them to put that in. That is not an apology! Nice try again, but the Bhutan people are not buying it.

  8. Good that the correction has been made timely. We all know that it was an intentional missprint and it should not be repeated. Looks like the DPT govt is a ” Roll Back Govt” or what. The Govt. needs to get their act together and show better performance and example as our first democratic govt. God save our country.

  9. to me there’s no war…. i guess its a matter of realising a mistake and undoing it. While, it is new i think we shouldn’t start the culture of ritualised opposition in country. It can be dangerous and we might not know where to stop.
    once concerns and problems become battle and war, the end goal changes and people lose reason along the way… just a thought. it is good that the notice has been changed.

    U ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT THE FM MADE A GENUINE MISTAKE? WHAT DO U RECOMMEND WE DO IF MISTAKES ARE MADE AGAIN BY OUR GOVERNMENT? PLEASE ADVICE.

  11. Kuensel reports:
    “The letter to the Speaker of the National Assembly and Chairman of the National Council stated that the pay rise and revised benefits for MPs would be in effect from April 1, 2008.”
    Note the date.”

    Now check this out:

    “However, the speaker and chairman yesterday received another letter from the finance ministry, which stated the pay revision for parliamentarians would be effective from January 1, 2009 and not from April 1, 2008, as reported earlier. “I regret the inconvenience caused,” stated the finance minister Lyonpo Wangdi Norbu in his letter.”

    A misprint they say? I agree there can be typing errors, but, January 1,2009 and April 1 2008 are two different dates and not even close by to ‘misprint’. If this was indeed a misprint, this is one hell of a misprint I should say.
    Do they not proof read what they pass out? Do they even care what follows after their silly mistake?
    I think this is what they call a lame excuse to make up for some serious mistake. The concerned minister owes a public apology through the media.
    Let’s own our own mistakes to begin with. We have a long way to go.
