Karma Lhamo
Age: 39
Experience: Former Member of Parliament.
Education: MBA.

Describe yourself in three words.
I am honest,straightforward,and hardworking.

Your priority for the constituency.
Road improvement,safe drinking water supply, irrigation rehabilitation, improve education and health services, establishment of ECCDs, construction, and renovation of lhakhangs and goendeys.

One aspect you like and dislike in the ongoing election process?
I like common forum campaigns conducted by ECB where the public come together to attend campaign and where candidates get to speak turn by turn. This erases the burden on the people having to attend campaign meetings repeatedly.
I dislike false promises and party workers spreading rumours that could create disharmony in the society.

What according to you is the biggest challenge for the country?
Divisive politics.

Three reasons why people should vote for you.
I understand the people’s priority. I am reachable to my constituents any time and can be the voice for the deprived ones. I have initiated scholarship for disadvantaged youth and have already reached out to more than 400 youth, mostly girls.

The first thing you will do if you win.
The foremost task if I win the election would be to harmonise the society as people are divided based on the party they support. I would consult with LG and the public on their priorities.

Social media, a boon or bane in this election for you?
Social media can be productive if used in constructive ways but these days too many anonymous users are using it to defame others.
