Mar. 14, 2018 -- "Great changes have been seen in my hometown," said Drolkar, a deputy to the 13th National People's Congress from southwest China's Tibet, during an interview.
The Yumai Township, Drolkar's hometown, is a remote township with the smallest population in China. For half a century, her family grazes their sheep and cattle there to safeguard the border area. And their story has deeply touched the heart of people across the country.
"We have highways, we have power, and new homes are being built as well. We also have stores, restaurants, and family inns right in the village. You even don't need cash when shopping, for everything can be paid via your cellphone," Drolkar said happily when talking about her more and more convenient life in hometown.
Drolkar said she will continue to safeguard the border region in future.
"We know we can make our hometown as beautiful as the galsang flower," she said.
