Journalists from various media outlets including Bhutan Times, Business Bhutan, The Journalists, Kuensel, Bhutan Broadcasting Service (BBS), The Bhutanese, Bhutan Today, and freelance reporters, organized by Journalists’ Association of Bhutan (JAB) visited India from 3rd May to 10th May,2024. Journalists and delegates from other countries, including Israel and Mongolia, also took part in this visit. The purpose of the visit was to learn about India’s election process. This familiarization visit was organized by the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi.
The one-week visit encompassed various educational programs, such as briefings on the Indian electoral process, site visits to observe polling station preparations, and monitoring polling stations on election day to learn about transparency and other election-related aspects. The visit was highly successful and offered valuable educational experiences for all participating journalists.
On behalf of all the reporters who participated in the visit JAB express appreciation and gratitude to the Indian Embassy in Thimphu, the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi, the Election Commission of India (ECI) for the warm reception and kind hospitality extended to the Bhutanese delegates in New Delhi and Goa during the week-long election tour program to observe the 18th Lok Sabha election. We look forward to such opportunity for more journalists in future.
