Guwahati, Febeuary 14, 2019:
In the latest development in Sikkim, the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) President, PS Golay inaugurated seven block level party offices under Soreng-Chakung constituency of West Sikkim district.
This was informed in a statement issued to the media on Wednesday. The press release further mentioned that the inauguration program was held with a simple interaction with an objective to interact with the local people.
The block-level offices were set up at different areas under the constituency including Karthok, Ridhang-Timborbung, Mangsari Magarjung, Budang, and Chumbong, according to the release.
Addressing the gatherings, the SKM president highlighted the need for a ‘fierce urgency’ requiring the participation of the society against the ‘tyranny’ in Sikkim. The current regime has mastered the practice of neo-feudalism, and has employed the practice to subdue and influence the local people, he said.
Further, Golay said, “Now it is time to wake up and I urge everyone to vote not on basis of caste and creed but to secure the future of our Sikkimese society. We fought the 2014 election with vigour even though the time was against us and still managed to secure 10 seats in the State Assembly. In this 2019 election, we got time and the resources and we will win it this time for we have the blessing of our deity and the people. We believe in politics which prevails in truth and facts.”
It is to be mentioned that the SKM is a political party that was established in 2013 at Soreng, a western city in Sikkim. It is currently the second largest party and opposition in the Sikkim Legislative Assembly. The party has, meanwhile, reiterated 35 demands placed before Government and given a deadline of 25 February to address them, upon failure to do which they will announce a 24-hour ‘bandh’ on February 28, to be followed by protests.
