GANGTOK, May 27, 2013
On the fifth day of his North Sikkim tour, rebel SDF legislator Prem Singh Golay on May 24 reached remote areas of Chungthang, Lachung and nearby villages with his ‘Parivartan’ campaign.
During his interactions with the local public as per a press release, Golay claimed that North Sikkim has been left neglected by the SDF government. The road conditions in North Sikkim are in extremely deplorable conditions and it is sad to see that people here are deprived of modern facilities due to the poor policies of the SDF government, he said.
North Sikkim has been cut-off from the modern world and time has come for the people here to prepare for correcting all these problems, said Golay. He accused the SDF government of defiling the purity of Dzongu by implementing hydel power projects in the protected area for Lepcha community.
On May 23, Golay had toured different villages of Dzongu and interacted with the villagers of Tingbong, Lingdok and Upper Singhyik about his campaign. He spoke about the efforts made by the Lepchas of Dzongu to protect their area from hydel power projects.
“You sat on a hunger strike of more than nine hundred days to protect the cultural, religious and historical identity of Dzongu and Sikkim but it had no effect on the State government. But people now understand your movement and entire Sikkim is under the movement of change. Those who sold out Dzongu and Sikkim’s nature, religion and identity would be destroyed in this movement”, said Golay.
Meanwhile, the Sikkim Krantikari Morcha (SKM) today held a meeting at Mashbasey village under Bermoik-Geyzing constituency in West district. Addressing
the meeting, Yuva Morcha chief convener Roshan Pradhan said youths in Sikkim are being restricted to only casual jobs only. Youths have become addicted
to drugs but the State government has not thought how to bring these youths towards the mainstream of life, he said.
Another SKM release claims that police today forcibly removed the party flags in Pakyong town. However, the SDF flags are still placed in the town, said the SKM accusing the police of being one-sided.
