Summit Report

GANGTOK, 20 Dec:

Hamro Sikkim Party working president,Bhaichung Bhutia has welcomed the announcement of the Chief Minister to bring CBI in Sikkim. However, he asserted that the CBI should investigate the alleged scams of the previous and present governments in the State.

An HSP press release states that it is heartening to know that the SKM government is bringing CBI to Sikkim early next year.

“I hope this time he does keep his word and not be like any other promises he has made in the past. We would like the SKM Govt to let CBI investigate everything from the last government's scams to all the scams that are happening during the tenure of the present government as well, starting from scams related to Smart TV given to students, Su SwasthaYojna Scheme, all the kick-backs from construction of hospital to new Universities and all PPP models given to private companies,” the release states.

The release adds that it is high time that the present Government makes public all these deals that have been signed.

“Hamro Sikkim Party welcomes the announcement regarding CBI but the government cannot pick and choose which scams should be investigated. Hamro Sikkim as a party has a zero tolerance policy on corruption and we want our Sikkim to be a corruption free state,” it is added.

The release mentions that the Parivartan [change] the people of Sikkim can see is only in envelopes [Lifa] getting thicker.

Hamro Sikkim Party will make the youth of Sikkim GariKhane and not Thapikhane and urged everyone to fight corruption that benefits only a small portion of people.
