Farmers in parts of Radhi Gewog
in Trashigang are worried by the acute water shortage of irrigation hampering their paddy cultivation works.
For the elections of the National Council (NC), the upper house of Bhutan's bicameral Parliament, each gewog
, a block of some thirteen villages, can nominate one male and one female candidate to contest elections that are held at dzongkhags (a district comprising 205 gewogs
However, the performance audit report on grant funded (GDG) in 2016 and also the ACC annual reports have pointed out that inadequate human resources have resulted in poor quality and delay of the gewog
The government of Bhutan has unveiled the country's largest irrigation channel in Yoeseltse Gewog
in Samtse, the largest rice-producing district of Bhutan.

Covering an area of 230 square kilometres, each gewog
is further divided into a chios, also known as a chiwog.
Water shortage in Kanglung will finally be resolved with the construction of two water treatment plants in the gewog
nearing completion by July end.
Some other pledges already fulfilled by the governments are the initiation of a meet-the-people program, tabling of the Right to Information Bill, starting the Nu2M annual grant to every gewog
, cutting down on the government's wasteful expenditure and providing free electricity to rural homes.
Gomdar Gup, Sonam Tshewang said that widening work at Narphung has not only affected the GC road but it has also damaged the water sources causing water shortage in the gewog
. 'Workers at the site are using the gewog
road as a dumping pit and have made the road non-pliable,' said the gup.
