Gangtok, 18 Sept:
An introductory function was organized on behalf of the state government to the newly appointed departmental Advisors and chairpersons at Samman Bhawan, Gangtok yesterday. Newly appointed advisors from the Bharatiya Janata Party were also present at the introductory function, which was attended by Chief Minister, Prem Singh Tamang, State Cabinet as well as senior departmental officials.
For the first time in the history of Sikkim, people are witnessing an alliance of ruling party of the state with the ruling party of the center with a commitment of cooperation and to advance the development of the state in the coming days. Despite efforts to form an alliance between the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha before last year's assembly elections, however it was finally materialized during by-elections in October, 2019. In the Assembly by-elections, the coalition successfully contested the elections and won all the three seats by a huge margin.
Further, the alliance has now reached a turning point in which the Chief Minister of Sikkim, Prem Singh Tamang has shown his political tolerance and ideological maturity by including State BJP in the government. The Bharatiya Janata Party, the state and the central committee have also been positive in this regard. Taking the matter seriously, the Bharatiya Janata Party expresses its commitment to adhere the duty of alliance for the betterment of Sikkim and its people.
Lastly, I would like to express my gratitude to SKM Party President & Chief Minister, PS Tamang, SKM leadership and the BJP Central leadership for this historic initiative and assure all that the State BJP is committed to this role. At this crucial moment, I congratulate all the workers of Sikkim Krantikari Morcha and State Bharatiya Janata Party and extend best wishes for the development of Sikkim in the days to come and also wish this reconciliation between the two parties to continue forever.
