The first-ever shuttle bus between Thimphu and Paro International Airport will hit the road next week. With the launch of three shuttle buses, passengers at the Paro International Airport can now avail themselves of comfortable bus rides to and from Thimphu.
Local leaders of Pema Gatshel say the Local Government Members Entitlement Act of Bhutan 2015 is not implemented by the book. This, in particular, is with reference to their leave and associated benefits. The issue was discussed during the Dzongkhag Tshogdu recently.
Liquefied petroleum gas or LPG cylinder shortage has gripped the five gewogs in Tashichhoeling Dungkhag in Samtse. For the past couple of months, many people from Norgaygang, Tendruk, Pemaling, and Namgaychhoeling Gewogs had to leave disappointed with only empty cylinders to take back.
The people of Koenchhoeling under Khamdang Gewog in Trashi Yangtse are worried that they might not be able to cultivate paddy this year. Locals claim that falling boulders from the highway widening works blocked their irrigation channels.
Lack of irrigation channel has forced people of Bangtsho Chiwog in Samdrup Jongkhar to leave their fields fallow. This, villagers say, has adversely affected their quest of becoming self-sufficient in rice.
