  5. There is a misleading message in the news about the Sydney chapter of ABA. The ABA only exist in Sydney, so the editor, can you please correct accordingly. This will send the wrong message to other Bhutanese communities in Australia in other states.
    The ABA was formed in Sydney and does noty have any member out of Sydney.
