Free media’s ace

The ministry of information and communications finally has a secretary. Dasho Kinley Dorji, the former Kuensel MD, assumed his new office this morning.

Dasho Kinley, popularly called “Ace”, has a big responsibility. On the one hand, as the champion of a free media, journalists will expect him to continue leading and defending our still nascent media.

But as a government secretary, on the other hand, he will be expected to carry out the directives of the government, his political masters.

I wish him Tashi Delek! I also wish him, and the press, good luck.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS “ACE”
    WE HOPE YOU CLEAR THAT MINISTRY’S MENACE
    SO WE CAN HAVE SOME SOLACE
    AND EVERYONE OF US WILL EMBRACE

    IT’S ALL FOR GOOD – A GOOD CHANGE

  2. Dasho Kinley..

    If I were you, my list in order of priority would be something like this.

    1. Investigate the Bhutan Post case.
    2. You wouldn't want to have "rats" in your own organization, do you??
    3. Do you really think building an airport in the East makes sense?? Is it a "political propaganda" or "calculated investment".
    4. Improve the quality of BBS TV. It’s almost 10 years now, yet it’s just like the first day. Please, induce in our reporters (both print & TV) the values and ethics of journalism, a true reporting and most importantly, good presentation.
    4. Please do something about the internet. Bhutan Telecom should not be run by some arrogant bureaucrats with vested interest. It is a Government owned Corporation which was mostly build on "Grant Money". How can they offer huge pay structure and fat bonuses, when they do not even consider a good service to its clients? Please regulate their monopoly.
    5. Save the Bhutanese people from the monopoly of Cable operators.
    6. When will be get back Ten Sports, Champions League is about to end??

    I wish you success.

  3. the first thing to do is scrap BICMA< we can do without it, there are enough laws in the penal code to prevent major publishing crimes, the rest need not be regulated.

  4. ALL GOOD
