Gangtok, 23 May:
Bharatiya Janata Party Sikkim Pradesh president, DB Chauhan, toured Pakyong sub-division and interacted with the residents there today.
During the interaction, it was found that people residing near the soon-to-be-inaugurated Pakyong Airport are facing problems due to sinking of land and improper rehabilitation, informs a BJP press release.
The release further informs that due to the landslide that had occurred near the SDM Office in Pakyong last year, residents are facing lots of problems.
“The concerned department has still not acted regarding the matter,” the party further alleges.
Mr Chauhan also interacted with SDM Pakyong, Tenzing D Bhutia, on the issue, the release adds.
The party has demanded Roads & Bridges Department to immediately take appropriate action before the monsoon season and to work in the interest of local people.
