Exiled Bhutanese resettled in different parts of Denmark held first general assembly of the Association of Nepali Speaking Bhutanese in Denmark, a community organisation, on Saturday.
“Majority of Bhutanese resettled in Denmark attended the general assembly held at Frivilligehuset in Jammerbugt municipilty,” reads the press statement released by its President Thugten Dorji Drukpa.
“The house felt necessary to change the name of the association from Association of Nepali Speaking Bhutanese in Denmark to Association of Bhutanese Communities in Denmark (ABCD), ” adds the statement.
The assembly dissolved the temporary working committee formed in October last year there by electing a new board headed by Drukpa. The assembly also elected Kuldeep Kathet as treasurer and Moti Lal Baraily, Hem Timsina and Tika Tiwari as regional coordinators from North Jylland, MidJylland and Fyn respectively.
“We have adopted a new constitution. We have also elected Bishnu adhikari and Lal Bahadur Bista as Auditors,” President Drukpa informed over telephone. “We will work with a good spirit to stay unitedly in this country,” he added.
There are about 500 Bhutanese resettled in different parts of Denmark.
