“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.

  3. Great Congrats to our Denmark resettled immigrants. I am really confused by some of our community leaders by advocating political term/words and imitations of netas of Nepal. Though it may tally at some point but lets not cultivate bygones political activities and fool any people. We should never ignore any of the members’ opinions but literate them and bring them into maturity and commitment so that everyone can enjoy the fruit of handwork and commitment.

  4. Best of luck ..all the representatives of Bhutanese from Denmark. It’ s good initiative for the benefit of Bhutanese people for the benefit . I would like to suggest not to leave your track in running organization and serve the community smoothly and impartially.
