A brief critique on MP Samten Chodon

MP Samten Chodon got her bachelor’s degree in Commerce from Teresian College, Mysore. She has served 23 years in different capacity as an assistant Accountant cum Secretary and accountant at Lugsum Tibetan Cooperative Society.

She also worked at both Regional and Centrex TWA for two consecutive terms.

She is a first timer who got elected in the 16thTPiE as a member from Utsang Cholkha.

As a parliamentarian and as an accountant for 23 years, her contribution in the House is minimal. She does not point the short comings of CTA in finance and accountancy. Is she still trying to gather her courage to do her role as an opposition party in the house? Or is she scared to make the local dada Pema Delek angry with her questions pertaining to Bylakuppe?

While taking the oath of office, you promise to do your work without fear and attachment in front of His Holiness’s portrait. Is this just an empty pledge?

She too like all the young elected members have let down the aspiration of the people, who voted for them to bring change vis-à-vis Khampa negative regionalism which is eating up the base of Tibetan Unity.

By accepting the invitation from Utsang Centrex to felicitate the Utsangpas elected as members in 16thTPiE, she has shown her pride in her root.

She is no doubt a nice woman but a coward at heart.
