|Thimphu, City Bus|
While it is very good news for the people living in Thimphu city. But it's not same for the people living in far-away places like Zhemgang about the new city bus hitting the road. The very obsolete fact about the Zhemgang is – zhemgang always remains cut-off from public transport services. Even, Taxi isn't so reciprocity during emergency.
Whatever, city will continue to prosper - while Zhemgang can only afford to produce pools of fresh and polished air. No vehicles no air pollution – and the recent parliament discussion wasn't far-off from the new city bus hitting the Thimphu high-way.
The planners in Bhutan lack a key ingredient to a free and fair developmental plans; the freedom to see the forest beyond the trees, the freedom to choose what is necessary for the growth of the country lies within and far away from our unwise politicians.
I couldn’t help but to simply agree with the policy makers and the bureaucrat on whatever they implement.
Precisely, I have found that there is a big mismatch and the problem with our planners in framing and implementing the plans uniformly and wisely always.
Happiness comes through good judgment, good judgment comes through experience and experience comes through bad judgment. But, there is something very wrong with our system, making the same mistakes over and over again, day in and day out. This shows a complete lack of self-awareness, the very far-flung zhemgang will continue to experience its fated doomsday, whatever and whoever comes into power.
It’s sort of like breaking in a new pair of shoes - at first, it’s a little hard to wear them but soon they fit like a glove. Here, I don’t fully agree onto support the ideas on an effort to address the increasing number of vehicles in the city as if life happens only for city people, as if they only can afford to buy new vehicles. When city has already plenty and better-off facilities than any other places yet developmental progress never stops to freeze. What is really happening in our country - isn't this against the wheel of GNH or the power lies for powerful minds?
The latest City Bus services for Thimphu city has given me lots of mixed feelings; how and why Thimphu only need such facilities, as if government of the day was elected alone by Thimphupas and not by other far-off people. It seemed to me that people living in Thimphu only need such good and advanced facilities. It seemed that people living in Thimphu only has the problem, need to survive and need such facilities. Then, why our policy makers are arguing so much on to reduce rural-urban migration.
The cost of imported City Bus has amounted to Nu 67 million, I can flatly agree upon it without any deny. But, my question is - what, if our government can spare Nu 3.2 million for procuring one least advanced bus for places like Zhemgang to ease more severe problems of increasing number of private vehicles hitting the road every day. But, more importantly it would unruly benefit uncountable disadvantaged friends and families.
The recent survey from 'Roads Safety and transport Authority' has found out that at least seven-to-ten vehicles are hitting Bhutanese road every day and the story is no different for Zhemgang.
If government can deploy few decent bus to the place where there are no bus service and on need based, it would immensely benefit the people far-and-wide. Resected politicians and concern agency; “Zhemgangpas, only need decent and fine bus service.”
|Bus: Zhemgangpas, wanted this kind of of simple and workable bus service.|
Is our government of the day wise to do this job? If - otherwise, we also need one decent bus service to ease even more dangerous social problems than any other.
