With her high school certificate, she is perhaps the least educated in the Parliament.
She was elected to the 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th TPiE from Dhotoe Cholkha and her mentor for her political career is her father Kalon Trisur Juchen Thupten whose name showed up in 1989 on a list of Khampas who were on Taiwan Phok payroll.
As a Parliamentarian she is at the forefront to serve the interest of her Cholkha and during a debate in the house whether MP Sonam Topgyal, elected from India is eligible to get a travel fare from Australia she instead of citing rational rules and regulations stooped low questioning the purity of the then Amdo MP Doma Tsomo’s birth, who had raised this issue.
Was she carried away by the crocodile tears of the then Health Kalon Tsering Wangchuk to support him or did she want to belittle the word of His Holiness on his incompetence on the deteriorating health situation in exile with a special mention of the monks and their Petri Gyenlas?
The nature of her participation in the house is more like a street fight than a decent debate. She is a cheap role model to the viewers at large. Her caliber as a member is more so as the daughter of Juchen Thupten who had the power to admit 12 students in a year at TCV Chauntra as a Chairman of Board of Director of TCV. Does she have the same privilege now?
Loyalty to her Cholkha is obvious both in the house and also in her attendance on all the meetings of Delhi Dhokham Chushi Gangdruk that HH had issues with because it signed an illegal treaty with Taiwan phok committee in Bangalore in 1994.
