The people of this country are not suppressed politically but also economically. The country has been exposed as the most economically advancing in the South Asian region. But have you ever gone through details if the incomes have been invested for benefited to the poor people of the country.
Have you ever studied the nature of the industrial ownership in the country? If not you have been in the dark on how you have been suppressed to this day. How many business companies in Bhutan are being hold by the people or general public. What is the annual income that these companies make annually?
In most productive sectors, the wangchuks have invested or already occupied. Son in law of the second king still occupies most the industrial sector. Ugyen Dorji, the 2nd-Lieut. Royal Bhutan Army 1953 chairs Lakhi Group Org. & Tashi Group of Companies, Unit Trust of Bhutan, the Bhutan Lottery, Bhutan Carbide & Chemicals, and Bhutan Ferro Alloys Ltd.
He was president of Bhutan Chamber of Commerce in 1980, SAARC Chamber of Commerce & Industry in 2006. He was first married at Bumthang, on 1st August 1955 Ashi Choki Ongmo Wangchuck but later divorced. He again married Topga Rimpoche, eldest daughter of Sir Jigme Wangchuk in 1968. His son by Ashi Ugyen Dorji, a Nepalese descent, Wangchuk Dorji hold the position of vice chairman of the Tashi group.
Most female members of the present wangchuk family have been employed in banks, foreign ministry, agriculture ministry, planning commission, finance ministry, revenue and custom offices and chambers. All important positions in the political circle and economic sectors have been filled the wangchuk relatives. Top positions in agencies like Bhutan Youth Development Fund, UNICEF country representative, Jaycees and Rotary clubs have been occupied by the wangchuk members.
All education institutions have been named after the wangchuks as if there no other people in the country who have toiled for welfare of the country. Why is the history of Shabdrung is vanishing, the contribution of Ugyen Dorji, Jigme Palden Dorji have been ignored.
All in all, now the wangchuks have begun investing in private educational sector as well. Timbers have been their, exports and imports have been their, mineral have been their and now education is in line to be theirs business. Interestingly, all water resources have been sold to India. But don’t regret, all the money is recovered at the finance ministry where Khesar’s aunt is working.
Tired of writing. I will be exploring on many other sectors on which the wangchuks have been playing monopoly, sucking the bloods of the people.
See you later. Bye
