    While government claims to have an emulative bilateral relationship it is very sad that the reality is not as much as it is talked about in many different fora. Bhutanese do not at all enjoy any level of safety in India while Indians enjoy safety more than what they enjoy in their homeland. Did we ever hear of any Indian being injured or harassed while they were in Bhutan? I think something needs to be done. I hope inter road connection within Bhutan will bring such things to a stop and this is where the government will have to focus their attention and resources.

    All this happens due to weakness of the Bhutanese government. The government can’t tell any harsh words to Delhi, instead always lobby on them.

    If any thing happens with the Indians living here in Bhutan, the government takes immediate action and fix the culprits. A bit of call from Indian Embassy is enough to fix our people even under suspicion.
