Pedestrian day affects The Bhutanese


The Prime Minister Jigmi Y Thinley’s executive order to observe every Tuesday as a ‘pedestrian day’ has affected publication of the country’s first broadsheet bi-weekly.

The Bhutanese has shifted the publication of Wednesday issue to Thursday citing serious inconveniences caused by the pedestrian day, which the country has just introduced from June 5.

“Due to serious inconveniences caused by Pedestrian day, The Bhutanese Wednesday issue has been shifted to Thursday,” a noticed displayed in its website mentioned.

However, the newspaper said its Saturday issue would be printed as usual.
