Lobxang’s comment on “Mining our business”:
Pardon me, this is not related to mining but rather a bizarre topic.
Is the Government panicking over the upcoming SAARC Summit in the Country? From what I read in Kuensel, the government is acting like they are having a cold feet already. First, tour operators were asked to vacate hotel rooms of their guests in Thimphu to Punakha and Paro. Now Kuensel reports that there is this strange rule of allowing traffic on alternating days depending on their odd or even license numbers.
From my understanding, Bhutan had a very, very long time to prepare for this very upcoming occasion.
Is there a such thing as a Police Escort and Motorcade in our country? Sure, heavy traffic can be an inconvenience and a security concern to our dignitaries. But should the restrictions go as far as putting the ordinary lives to a complete halt? This is beginning to sound like the Russian legend of Potemkin Village. What are we trying to hide from the dignitaries anyway?
