Gangtok, 11 Feb:
Sikkim Krantikari Morcha observed the sixth ‘Pratiwad Diwas’ of the party here at the SKM party office at Deorali today.
The function, chaired by SKM president PS Tamang [Golay], was attended, among others, by party workers affected in the police lathicharge at the party office on 11 February 2013, an SKM press release informs.
The release explains that the party has been remembering 11 February as a “black day” for the unwarranted lathi-charge led by ADGP Akshay Sachdeva.
Today, the SKM president honoured affected party workers Kala Rai, Junu Chettri, Nuk Tshering Bhutia, Dependra Rai, Pankaj Giri, Tashi Wangyal Sherpa, Sonam Pintso Bhutia, Roshan Shrestha and Sonam Lachungpa and remembered their sacrifice towards the party, the release informs.
In his address, Mr Tamang mentioned that some antisocial elements have been defaming SKM by taking donations in the name of party and stressed that this was totally wrong. He insisted that SKM has never raised donations and if anyone is approached in the name of SKM for a donation, they should immediately file a police complaint against such persons.
