The Government is disappointed that the Opposition Party is using the media as their preferred channel to communicate with the government. A direct letter would have been more appropriate and productive, to which the government would have been happy to respond. The due process that the Opposition Party referred to in their press release has been duly followed in keeping with the provisions of the Constitution, the Civil Service Act, the BCSR and other legal instruments. The Government would like to reiterate that its decision was reached after carefully and thoroughly considering all the facts of the case.

The points that the Opposition Party has raised have all been adequately considered in the Lhengye Zhungtshog. The government is very concerned that the Opposition Party has chosen to incite fear in the civil service instead of providing constructive views. The sanctity of the civil service is protected by the Constitution, the Civil Service Act and BCSR. More importantly, this sanctity is guaranteed by none other than His Majesty the King. We appeal to the Opposition Party to refrain from sowing discord and inciting fear in our civil service. The government strongly objects to the Opposition Party’s attempt to mislead the public into believing that the surrender of the Secretaries was politically motivated. Having handed over the case to RCSC, we have full faith that the Commission will discharge its responsibilities diligently, without fear or favour, and keeping the larger interest of the country and the people in mind.
