Gangtok, 23 Aug:

A constituency-level meeting of Sikkim Krantikari Morcha for Gyalshing-Bermiok constituency was held at Bermiok Bazaar on Thursday.

On the occasion, SKM president PS Tamang [Golay] inaugurated the constituency-level party office at 13th Mile and welcomed 117 families from SDF from different parts of the constituency into the SKM fold. Also on the day, eight families from Chakung-Soreng constituency and one family from Kyongsa ward of Yangthang constituency joined the SKM, informs an SKM press release.

The release adds that in his address, the SKM party president mentioned that he surrendered and went to jail in the interest of the people of Sikkim. Mr Tamang, it may be recalled, completed a one year prison term following his conviction in a corruption case.

He alleged that the State government conspired to send him to jail. He also alleged that Minister RB Subba has been indulging in communal politics and added that SKM on the other hand has been working to unite all communities of Sikkim and urged the people to identify the leader who can lead all the communities together.

Mr Tamang alleged that the SDF president, Chief Minnister Pawan Chamling, has been making false promises and announcements in his long speeches and deceiving the people.

He also mentioned that the SDF party has not been working in the interest of students and youth. He further alleged that the ruling party has been deceiving Limboo and Tamang communities with false assurances for long years.

Mr Tamang mentioned that SKM was ready for the upcoming election with all candidates and no that power can stop PS Golay from contesting the 2019 elections.

He added that SKM would hand over Sikkim to the youth of the State. He also lashed out on the government for not working in the interest of farmers, Sherpa community and government employees.
