Acting President and Executive Chief of the Bhutan National Democratic Party (BNDP), Dr DNS Dhakal, said his party would initiate process to consolidate the movement focussing at repatriation of willing refugees to Bhutan and deepening of the Non-Resident Bhutanese (NRB) network.
Issuing a press statement on February 7 on the occasion of the party’s anniversary, Dr Dhakal also called upon all the party members to continue to be part of the movement irrespective of dispersion because of the third country resettlement program.
“The BNDP has crossed two decades of its existence in exile. The party is committed for establishment of inclusive democracy in Bhutan and repatriation of willing refugees to their own place with honor and dignity,” said Dr Dhakal in his statement.
Welcoming the recent changes in the system of governance in Bhutan, BNDP has also sent best wishes to the contesting political parties inside the country in the forthcoming general election.
“This is a beginning of the process that will help achieve our longterm goal,” added he.
Dr Dhakal further said his party would continue considering resettled refugees as NRB.
“The recognition of the resettled refugees as NRB by democratically elected parliament of Bhutan will continue to be one of the campaign agendas of the party.”
