The Royal Poll: Continued Vulgar Male dance Inside an Exclusion Zone



The fake democratization of Bhutan has spent its first five years phase. The royal regime having been able to cheat and subdue the mass aspiration has completed the second ‘periodic poll’. The glimpse of the poll campaign already manifested the continuation of royal fascism in the name of democracy. It was witnessed that the candidates were kept in tow by the monarchy and the pro-monarchy ‘election commission’. The wave of interaction carried out by the candidates among the masses reflected nothing other than Drukpa kagyukpa ruling caste chauvinism. The Nepali speaking candidates in the southern districts are compailed to present their commitments in Dzongkha. Interestingly, Kuensel, the reactionary mouth piece reports that some of the candidates could not even read out their Commitments and others faced difficulties. The masses assembled to listening to what the candidates would deliver could not understand the speeches. The Tsangla speaking people in the east too faced similar problem. Despite of being imposed exclusively Dzongkha is neither accepted nor adopted by the masses in multiplicity. People traveled from far and got nothing after they heard irritating cacophony and lethargic murmur in Dzongkha. The commitment speeches became sedative to the oppressed masses. Question arises here; how can the sleeping masses identify and choose their candidates? How can they examine the essence of the ‘democracy’? In fact the masses of many nationalities like Gorkha and Tsangla only heard the speeches, could not listen.

Statement on the twelfth anniversary of the party





Communist Party of Bhutan (Marxist-Leninist-Maoist) has spent its twelve years. Seventh November this year is the twelfth anniversary of the party. We feel pride to extend our revolutionary greetings on this glorious occasion and on the occasion of ninety-sixth October revolution day at a time. Unfortunately the party-revolution is in a serious set back owing to a number of objective and subjective circumstances. The socio-cultural, geo- political, some practical physical and geographical complications along with the February defeat and the shameful intervention of imperialist-host country nexus in the refugee issue are the major subjective reasons behind the setback. In the same way the problem of leadership and specifically lack of a practically unanimous revolutionary nucleus in the central leading body and the problem of correct action line are the main objective reasons behind this setback.
