"The Party's policy of benefiting us is excellent! My daughter is in her junior year of college and we do not need to pay any tuition by ourselves; moreover, she has 4,000 yuan RMB transportation allowance annually. My son has joined the army last year and I'm so proud of our family being awarded the 'Family of Honor'." Sonam Lhadron says with a smile.
