  4. OPED 9 Sovereignty and sensitivity Why context matters Sovereignty and sensitivity Given concerns over Indian influence, New Delhi must exercise caution in the run-up to Bhutan's elections S. UBHODEEP

  6. Border Roads Organisation, which helps build Bhutanese roads under Project Dantak, decided in July to make those markers in shades of the Indian tricolour, it raised red flags among the Bhutanese on social media. Citizens were worried that this was an attempt by India to impose its flag on their countryside. Heightened sensitivities in the Himalayan kingdom as it heads to its third general election The National Assembly of Bhutan was dissolved and an interim government was appointed this month ahead of the election, which will be completed by October-end, marking 10 years of democracy in Bhutan UBHODEEP

  7. At his party's first rally on August 4, Mr. Tobgay touted the 8% GDP growth in favour of his party, which has been fuelled by a construction and tourist boom in Bhutan. However, Mr. Tobgay has been unable to curb the national debt, owed mostly to India for hydropower loans, as he had promised to do in his last campaign. Attacking Mr. Tobgay over a perceived "pro-lndia" stance will be part of the Opposition's messaging. "For a self-reliant Bhutan: our concern, our responsibility". UBHODEEP

  8. Given this, India must step lightly and thoughtfully around the upcoming election. Since then, the Narendra Modi government's actions, indicating a preference for one party (for example, Sheikh Hasina's Awami League in Bangladesh) or antipathy for another (such as for Mahinda Rajapaksa's Sri Lanka Freedom Party), have been noted closely in Bhutan Revisiting policies and issues Revise India's Bhutan policy and address several issues that have come up in the past few years. Eg. hydropower projects where delays in constructing and commissioning in Bhutan by Indian companies have led to the country's burgeoning national debt. UBHODEEP

  9. In addition, India's power-surplus status and the advent of other renewable energies like wind and solar power will make it more difficult for Bhutan to ensure that its hydropower sector becomes profitable. And unless India finds ways to help, it will be accused of the same sort of "debt-trapping" that China is accused of today. India also needs to focus on policing cross-border trade better. The goods and services tax still hurts Bhutanese exporters, and demonetisation has left lasting scars on the banking svstem. UBHODEEP

  10. The biggest issue between India and Bhutan will remain how to deal with China The Doklam crisis has brought home many realities for the Bhutanese establishment The first is that Doklam, which has long been discussed as part of a possible "package solution" to the Bhutan-China border dispute, could become a point of India-China conflagration, with Bhutan becoming a hapless spectator in the middle- again Experts point out that China's actions since last June, to build a permanent military presence above the stand-off point, mean that Bhutan has a much reduced advantage in any forthcoming negotiations on the issue.
