Post Election

All the components of Democratic country are now in place with the recent Local Government (LG) Election that was done on 27th June, 2011. It went as it was planned and expected by the government and the Election commission of Bhutan (ECB) but it is very sad to see and hear the post election happenings in the country.

In the First place, ECB has failed to provide the remunerations to the election officials after their duty. the officials expected the money as soon as they returned as promised by some of the ROs. But when the officials  (most of whom were teachers and the dzongkhag Officials) returned it was disheartening to hear that the budget from ECB has not come. Now, whose fault was it; the ECB or the dzongkhag election office? They should have informed the officials about the issue before they went for the duty. 

On the other hand, the officials should have patience and wait for a while. I am sure ECB will not leave us empty handed. It is a shameful to hear the ECB announcing about the issue on the TV. We should understand the tremendous pressure the ECB went through during the election. The officials there had the unthinkable job and it was all done for the nation- Us...

What ever may be, the officials who went for duty are furious but nobody can do anything. I guess the ECB is also pressurized by the officials for their delay. So lets wait see what happens.

The Recreational Areas............What are they for?

This is one of the many children parks in our country. Every stake holders is aware of the lack of basic amenities in our mushrooming towns. The need of recreational facility is one of the most important for the children and parents of a growing town were the space is becoming smaller every day with development activities. But this lacks everywhere , the few ones are underutilized or miss-utilize.

Whose responsibility is it to take care? This question has been thrown to and fro between the government and the citizen. The citizens are very fast to point the fingers at the government while the government is proud to blame the people.

I think the fault can be shared equally between the two parties. Firstly, the government, when coming up with such facilities, should plan regarding Where, How, When and Why of such developments. A proper place should be allocated by the government and not where the land is useless.The facility should be accessible by all the people of the town.
When being constructed, the quality of the facility should not be compromised at all which can pose risk to the lives of our children. The government should monitor the constructions rather than visiting few times when construction is going on and then never turning your eyes towards it. 

Provisions for such amenities should be kept in all the upcoming towns. Thinking later when the town has grown, could be like stitching warm clothes in peak winter. If possible, it can be constructed along with the town. 

The other half of the fault lies with the citizens. The users should develop the sense of belongingness and bear the responsibility of taking care. we should be aware when and how to use them. The recreation areas are meant for all and not only for you only. 

What ever the reasons may be, most of the recreation areas in our country are not serving their purpose. And the blame should be shouldered by us and us alone.
