Bhutan Peoples' Party
Political Awareness Programs
Bhutan Peoples’ Party is of the strong view that the wind of Democracy will definitely blow towards Bhutan in the near future. With this hope in mind it has been tirelessly working for creating a strong force of the Bhutanese youths with deep-rooted knowledge of Democratic procedure. To this end party always extend its hands for the possible assistance in all forms from like-minded organizations and individuals.
It has become clear that the political reforms in the country is not the wishful cry of any particular community but a popular demand by all the Bhutanese people who have suffered generations in servitude at the hand of the royal elite. The BPP believes that the government of Bhutan will be compelled to find a durable solution to the present problems, if we launch effective peaceful nationwide programs in close co-ordination with the people in the country.
The democratic movement in Bhutan is constrained by a number of factors. The most important being the lack of active interactions between the people living inside and outside the country. Over two decades of separations it has created a big communication gap. The message of political reforms has not yet fully percolated to all strata of the Bhutanese society. Regular publications to be disseminated inside the country and the flow of information regarding the violation of human rights in the kingdom need to be geared up.
The BPP is confident of creating political awareness to its cadres both inside and outside the country through most discreet training programs. Party believes that we have to build a concrete organization and strong foundation to resist the pressures that may come at any given time.
Towards this, party desire to conduct most discreet training programs, especially in democratic system of Governance for the cadres from inside the country and from the exile. BPP office is committed to carry out the training programs smoothly. The objective of the preparedness is to launch nationwide movement to take up the whole responsibility of giving momentum. If Bhutanese movement for Democracy has to be made effective and strong we need to organize various types of awareness programs with regards to Human Rights, Democracy and Social duties to the people both living inside and outside.
BPP is of the strong view that until and unless Bhutanese People are not enlightened of their rights and duties and how they are deprived of their inherent and birthrights by their ruler they cannot come openly against their ruler. Thus to mobilize mass support for this movement BPP would like to organize various types of training, seminars and workshops on issues ranging with Human Rights, Democracy and the types of governance.
Our society is inflicted with various kinds of evils and superstitious things. Due to such presence our society is always backward and diseased. To eliminate such negative aspects from our society BPP wishes to organize awareness programs to the Party Cadres, women, teachers, youths and students.
