Attack on Chamling planned by SKM, alleges SDF

Summit Report

Gangtok, 29 Mar:

Sikkim Democratic Front (SDF) has alleged that the attack on its president’s convoy on Monday was pre-planned by Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM).

In a press release issued today, SDF has said that despite section 144 being imposed around the Assembly premises, MG Marg was crowded with ministers, legislators, chairmen, leaders and supporters of SKM party.

The fact that Minister Sanjit Kharel addressed the cadres and provoked the crowd also confirms the well-planned conspiracy of the SKM party, the release alleges.

Within hours of the SKM cadres' deadly attack, the ruling party's chief publicity coordinator, Bikash Basnet, issued a lengthy statement blaming SDF president,Pawan Chamling. This official statement issued by SKM has also exposed the well-planned conspiracy of this party, SKM alleges.

Even today, after completing the proceedings of the second day's assembly session, Mr Chamling was attacked by SKM party cadres on his way back, the party has alleged.
