Start a "revolution of development" says CM

Gyalshing, 12 Apr [IPR]:

Chief Minister Pawan Chamling, who is on a 32-day Sikkim Public Outreach Campaign, concluded the third day of his tour of West district at Rinchenpong constituency.

The CM today addressed the public regarding development wherein he asked the public to make use of the opportunities and amenities provided to them by the state government. He mentioned that the State and its people need to understand that the governmental emoluments are given to them to increase their economic well-being and living standards making Sikkim a “self-sustaining and self-reliant” society.

Mr Chamling urged the Sikkimese society to work together towards the common goal of making Sikkim better in every way. He asked the public to start a “revolution of development” where every citizen is conscious and is responsible for the overall development of themselves and the state. Identifying developmental opportunities and ventures to help the State and its people is the duty of every Sikkimese citizen, he added.

While speaking on the various demands put forward by the Kaluk-Rinchenpong constituency, Mr Chamling assured the public that “public interest” demands will be put forward on priority basis. He also sanctioned the upgradation of Khaneysirbong Secondary School to Senior Secondary School in the coming months.
