Migma Dorji
Age: 28
Experience: Electronics engineer in Private sector
Education:Bachelors in Engineering

Describe yourself in three words
Motivated, broad-minded and sociable.

Your priority for the constituency 
Construct new roads and improve existing ones. Roads are the basic prerequisite for development of a community.
Concentrate on farm mechanization to modernize farming. Rural market places would be established with facilities to support input supplies, cold storage and refrigerated trucks to link producer and consumers.
Accord the highest priority to youth employment and initiate programmes to engage youths in productive activities. Promote easy access to finance for youth including access to loans without collateral.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process? 
I believe our election process is one of the finest in the region. However, I am uncertain for need of membership registration.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
Our country relies on agriculture. The mountainous landscape makes farming strenuous in our country. Construction of farm roads is very tricky. Wildlife rampage the hard toiled fields.

Three reasons why people should vote for you
Though young, with fresh ideas and innovative approach guided by experienced party leaders I can contribute further to my community. I have spent most of my time in my community, so I understand the problems faced and solutions needed by my community. As a young community’s representative I would better understand the youth problems.

The first thing you will do if you win
Roads are basic prerequisite for growth and development of a nation. I would improve existing roads and construct new ones. Quality roads will reduce prevailing social and economic disparities.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
Social media is a new platform. It has helped me interact with my constituents conveniently. I often convey my messages through social media on time. However, many manipulated news are being circulated through it creating disharmony within community. I believe social media is boon as well as bane to me.
